The rate of warping in irradiated and nonirradiated homograft rib cartilage: a controlled comparison and clinical implications.


Irradiated homograft costal cartilage reportedly warps less than autologous cartilage based on clinical observation; however, no controlled, experimental studies on the warping characteristics of irradiated homograft costal cartilage have been done. Fresh cadaver costal cartilage (ribs 5 through 8) was prepared and irradiated using a standardized technique… (More)
