The Masquelet Technique for Membrane Induction and the Healing of Ovine Critical Sized Segmental Defects

Abstract

The healing of critical sized segmental defects is an ongoing clinical problem. No method has achieved pre-eminence. The Masquelet technique is a relatively new innovation involving the induction of a fibrous tissue membrane around the bone defect site taking advantage of the body's foreign body reaction to the presence of a polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA… (More)
