A rabbit model was used to study the healing and stability of titanium implants in free bone grafts, placed simultaneously or after 8 weeks of healing and followed for 24 weeks. The skull bone was used as donor site and the tibial metaphysis as recipient site. Stability measurements were performed by using resonance frequency analysis (RFA) at implant placement and after 4, 8, 16 and 24 weeks of healing. Statistically significant higher resonance frequencies were measured at all time points for… CONTINUE READING
