BACKGROUND Use of rhBMP2 has been demonstrated to be an ideal bone reconstructive material for alveolar clefts. There is a lack of such studies from Indian cleft patients. AIM To compare rhBMP2 alveolar cleft repair and iliac crest graft treated cases. MATERIALS AND METHOD Retrospective analysis of rhBMP2 alveolar cleft repair and iliac crest graft treated cases. PREDICTOR VARIABLES Gender, type of surgery and type of cleft OUTCOME VARIABLES Total surgery time, blood loss at surgical… CONTINUE READING
