Quantification of Bone in Dental Implant Sites after Composite Grafting of the Mandible: Report of a Case

Richard A. Kraut, DDS/Harvey P. Kessler, DDS/Ralph E. Holmes, MD

PMID: 2557283

The amount of viable bone in a composite graft that consisted of autogenous iliac bone marrow, allogenic rib, and porous hydroxyapatite was quantified using standard histologic techniques and an optical insert disk prior to placement of endosteal implants in an augmented mandible. It is suggested that this technique could be used in such cases before deciding whether to proceed with implant insertion. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1989;4:153-158.)

Key words: atrophic mandible, bone quantification, composite graft, endosteal implants, porous hydroxyapatite
