This study describes the contour and volume of reconstructed mandibles using recombinant human osteogenic protein 1.
The investigation was conducted on six adult sheep, where a unilateral 35 mm parasymphyseal osteoperiosteal continuity defect of the mandible was created. Recombinant human osteogenic protein 1 and type-I collagen (as carrier) were applied to the defects. Radiographic and ultrasonographic examinations were carried out at day 1 of the surgery and 2, 4, 8, and 12 weeks following the surgery. The animals were then sacrificed 3 months after the operation. Postmortem CT-scan was performed for volumetric, cross-sectional area, height and width measurements.
Ultrasound was more efficient than radiographs in demonstrating early callus formation at 2 weeks, while radiographic evidence of bone formation was consistently detectable only after 4 weeks. Using the combination of recombinant human osteogenic protein type 1 and type-I collagen resulted in twice the volume, cross-sectional surface area, and height when compared with those of the corresponding region of the contra-lateral non-operated side of the mandible.
Within 3 months, recombinant human osteogenic protein type 1 on type-I collagen carrier failed to restore the original contour and volume of mandibular osteoperiosteal continuity defects.

    • "The presence of a heavy bone plate and photopolymer scaffold holder might have caused the functional loading to be transmitted through the plate, bypassing the surgical site. Researchers have demonstrated that the mandible is not immune to stress shielding (Throckmorton et al. 1992, Abu-Serriah et al. 2006 ). Thus, a better fixation procedure or an increase in the scaffold's strength must be developed in order to overcome this limi- tation. "

    ABSTRACT: Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate effective bone regeneration using an autologous serum scaffold (alone or seeded with autologous bone marrow-mesenchymal stem cells, BM-MSCs), when implanted in a 30mm length segmental mandibular defect in sheep. Materials and methods: The bone defect was filled either with serum scaffold alone (control group; n=5) or combined with BM-MSCs (experimental group; n=10). Bone regeneration was determined at 12 (T12; 2 control sheep and 4 experimental sheep) and 32 weeks (T32; 3 control and 6 experimental sheep), as measured by computed and microcomputed tomography and histological examination. Results: Two sheep of the Experimental group died after surgery. While complete bone union in the control group was only observed at T32, it was observed both at T12 (1/4 sheep) and T32 (3/4 sheep) in the experimental group. When properties/characteristics of new-bone where compared, a better bone quality, similar to native bone, was observed in the scaffold combined with BM-MSCs. Conclusions: Based on these results, we conclude that the serum scaffold can promote efficient repair of large bone defects, but the combination with BM-MSCs accelerates this process, increasing significantly the amount and quality of bone formed.

    ABSTRACT: Lead is becoming an increasingly unwanted material due to its toxic qualities. The objective of this study is to find out if an alternative lead-free solder technology can be recommended given the LCA knowledge we have today. Conductive adhesive is chosen as alternative to tin-lead solder. The result depends entirely on how the environmental loads from production of silver, tin and lead are divided between these metals since in many cases they are produced simultaneously. Further, the environmental effects of silver, tin and lead waste are very uncertain. Therefore, it cannot be determined whether tin-lead solder or conductive adhesive is the best environmental alternative

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility of reconstructing critical size continuity osteoperiosteal defects of the mandible using a composite of recombinant BMP-7 contained in a bovine type-1 collagen carrier wrapped in a pedicled sterno-occipitalis muscle flap. At 3 months following surgery, bridging of the surgical defect was noted in three subjects (60%). Histologically, the induced bone regenerate showed maturation from woven to lamellar bone. Islands of cartilage were distributed throughout the defect. Replacement ossification of the degenerated muscle was a common feature in all specimens. Microradiography showed a gradual increase in the calcification of mineralized tissue from the margin to the centre of the newly generated bone. This research represents a proof of the concept that bone can be satisfactorily formed within a muscular scaffolding at the site of the created defect in a one-stage procedure.
