Abstract

The effect of lyophilized bone chips with/without autologous platelet gel on the bone repir process after tibial osteotomy for genu varum was investigated. The lyophilized bone added with platelet gel enhances the bone formation process with vessel formation and deposition of new bone. It was observed that the bone chips undergoes a resorption process and the presence of fibrous and histiocyctic/giant-cell reaction. The results show that the treatment of bone grafts with activated autologous platelets accelerate the repair process.
