Resumen

ISSA, João Paulo Mardegan et al. Newly Formed Bone in Mandible Decortication Experimental Model Using rhBMP-2 Evaluated by Densitometric Study. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2008, vol.26, n.1, pp. 83-88. ISSN 0717-9502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022008000100014.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the newly formed bone, comparing two different carriers for rhBMP-2, using the decortication and nondecorticatication surgical technique in Wistar rat mandibles, evaluated by radiographic densitometry method. It was used fifty six animals according to specific treatment, which were sacrificed after 3 and 6 weeks after this. It was concluded that the decortication surgical technique was able to optimize the osteoinduction properties of the rhBMP-2, independently of the material carrier used and the period of time, according to radiographic densitometry technique.
