UNLABELLED Lengthening the mandible by distraction osteogenesis (DO) is nowadays a well-recognized technique in maxillofacial surgery. This study compared two different distraction rates and evaluated histological and histomorphometrical properties of the distracted bone in an experimental ovine mandible model with the goal of elaborating a universally accepted distraction protocol. STUDY DESIGN Tissue blocks of regenerated bone were harvested from twelve young adult sheep. DO was performed… CONTINUE READING
