This single title explores the choices and reduces the uncertainties you face to select the most appropriate bone graft solution for each patient case you encounter. Build a framework to evaluate the many considerations—from biological composition and cost to patient factors and risks—in choosing bone grafts or graft substitutes. Sharpen your understanding of bone regeneration and bone graft biology with this thorough review of the biological and biomechanical properties of autografts, allografts and xenografts, biologics, and synthetics.
