Current Concepts in Bone Grafting

  • H. Burchardt


The usual alternative to an autograft is the man-made implant device, or the use of allografts. Implants are readily available and produced with remarkable precision, yet they are not readily incorporated into the skeleton, and the attachment of soft-tissues remains a problem.
