Özet

Objective: The aim of this study was to develop an internal distractor to release a drug to the distraction site during the distraction process and to investigate whether intermittent bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP-2)-containing chitosan hydrogel infusion will improve radiologic and histologic parameters of distraction osteogenesis (DO) when compared with control groups.
