ABSTRACT Esta pesquisa analisa as alterações histológicas de enxerto ósseo homógeno preparado de diferentes modos. Em um grupo, ossos metatársicos-l de ratos foram armazenados a -70° Celsius e em outro grupo, os ossos foram descalcificados e estocados em temperatura ambiente após terem sido liofilizados. Esses ossos foram enxertados nas regiões inguinais de ratos e retirados para estudo histológico no trigésimo dia de pós-operatório. Macroscopicamente os ossos não descalcificados e armazenados a -70°C estavam envoltos por uma cápsula delgada, facilmente desprendida e apresentavam consistência de osso cortical. Microscopicamente observou-se absorção da superfície endostal com diminuição da camada cortical e aumento da cavidade medular. A cortical estava sofrendo processo de reabsorção e a superfície óssea externa possuía uma cápsula fibrosa delgada e células inflamatórias. Os ossos descalcificados e liofilizados, na macroscopia, apresentavam-se de consistência amolecida e estavam envoltos por uma cápsula espessa e firmemente aderida. Microscopicamente, a maior parte da arquitetura óssea estava preenchida por material acelular e avascular, muito semelhante à cartilagem e envolvendo o tecido, uma cápsula fibrosa espessa com células inflamatórias. Portanto, existiam diferenças histológicas dos enxertos ósseos homógenos, dependendo do preparo e do armazenamento do osso.

    ABSTRACT: Demineralised bone implants were used for cranio-maxillofacial reconstruction and construction in 34 patients, 28 with congenital deformities and 6 with acquired defects. The patients' ages ranged from 15 months to 59 years (mean 18 years). In 33 cases, the implants were obtained from cadaver femurs; in 1 case, the implant was prepared from the patient's own skull. Early healing was assessed by clinical and radiographic examination and, when appropriate, by biopsy. Longer follow-up will be required to determine whether resorption has been avoided. The clinical advantages are rapid union, healing of large defects, avoidance of harvesting procedures, and the potentially unlimited supply of banked material.

    ABSTRACT: The clinical outcome of bone grafting procedures depends on many factors, including type and fixation of the bone graft as well as the site and status of the host bed. Bone grafts serve one or both of two main functions, as a source of osteogenetic cells and as a mechanical support. Autografts, both cancellous and cortical, are usually implanted fresh and are often osteogenetic, whether by providing a source of osteoprogenitor cells or by being osteoinductive. The latter is a process whereby the transplanted tissue induces mesenchymal cells of the recipient to differentiate into osteoblastic cells. Cortical grafts, whether autogeneic or allogeneic, at least initially act as weight-bearing space fillers or struts. All bone grafts are initially resorbed, but cancellous grafts are completely replaced in time by creeping substitution, while cortical grafts remain an admixture of necrotic and viable bone for a prolonged period of time. The three-dimensional framework, which supports invasion of the bone grafts by capillaries and osteoprogenitor cells, termed "osteoconduction", is another important function of both autografts and allografts. Fresh allografts are more slowly and less completely replaced by host bones because they invoke both local and systemic immune responses that diminish or destroy the osteoinductive and conductive processes. Although freezing or freeze-drying of allografts improves acceptance, their failure rate is still too high. These processes are also influenced by the vascularity and composition of the host bed. Thus, the interaction of the host and the bone graft determines the success of these procedures, which ultimately is to provide a mechanically efficient support structure.

    ABSTRACT: The amount of repair and the time required to accomplish repair of four-centimeter segmental fibular transplants in twenty-one male adult dogs were determined at from two to forty-eight weeks after transplantation by torsional stress testing, microradiography, and tetracycline labeling. The transplanted cortical bone was greatly weakened at from six weeks to six months but was nearly normal at one year. The strength of the transplant appeared to be related to the amount of porosity of the matrix rather than to the quality or completeness of biological repair. Spatially, the repair was ordered rather than random. The initial resorption caused increased porosity which was slowly offset by apposition of new bone, a process which was dependent on general skeletal metabolic activity. Although physical strength was near normal at forty-eight weeks, only 60 per cent of the transplants had been remodeled.
