Ossification of decalcified and nondecalcified homologous bone grafts

Head & Neck Surgery
F M Rafaty


This two-year study examined the process of reossification and survival of decalcified and nondecalcified bone grafts implanted under the scalp tissue of 15 rabbits. Both radiologic and histologic examination showed that the nondecalcified fresh-frozen bone specimens became totally viable and recalcified while largely retaining their initial size. The decalcified bones, however, were totally absorbed within a period of four months. Possible reasons for failure of the decalcified bone to reossify are discussed.

Allogenic & Autologous Therapies

Allogenic therapies are generated in large batches from unrelated donor tissues such as bone marrow. In contrast, autologous therapies are manufactures as a single lot from the patient being treated. Here is the latest research on allogenic and autologous therapies.
