Conference paper


Bone reconstruction is usually described as a pathogen-free step in the treatment of delayed post-traumatic infection. The results of bone reconstruction have been improved by the use of microvascularized bone-free flaps [4–6]. By immediately revascularizing the bone graft, a functional cell population potentially able to heal per primam is preserved. Therefore, the authors became interested in the development of a canine model of induced bone infection and in the study of the behaviour of microvascularized bone grafts in a septic recipient site.
