Abstract Full Text
JAMA Facial Plast Surg. Published online December 6, 2018. doi:10.1001/jamafacial.2018.1508

This animal model study investigates whether a biosynthetic bone graft cross-linked with smoothened agonist activates the hedgehog signaling pathway in the reconstruction of craniofacial bony defects in female rats and if this is associated with bone regeneration.
