Esterified Hyaluronic Acid and Autologous Bone in the Surgical Correction of the Infra-Bone Defects

By Andrea BALLINI, Stefania CANTORE, Saverio CAPODIFERRO and Felice Roberto GRASSI


We study the osteoinductive effect of the hyaluronic acid (HA) by using an esterified low-molecular HA preparation (EHA) as a coadjuvant in the grafting processes to produce bone-like tissue in the presence of employing autologous bone obtained from intra-oral sites, to treat infra-bone defects without covering membrane
