The effect of methylprednisolone on porcine bone morphogenetic protein in fracture healing. An experimental allograft model in rabbits.

Abstract

Four different experiments were performed to study the effect of methylprednisolone on porcine bone morphogenetic protein (pBMP) in an allograft in adult rabbits. In each animal, a 2-cm segment of radius was excised and replaced with frozen allograft. Fifteen milligrams pBMP was applied over the graft-host junction in Groups I and III, and 30 mg pBMP was… (More)
