The authors examine one of the most difficult problems of orthopedic surgery: the treatment of post-traumatic bone defects of the limbs. Reconstruction using grafts and transplants is currently one of the most widely used techniques which exploits the possibility that the host organism will incorporate the transplanted bone through a series of complex biological reactions known as osteointegration. The authors analyse the differences with which bone integration occurs in various forms of grafts and the conditions for choosing one of these types of treatment according to the characteristics of the bone defect, underlining that, wherever possible, a posttraumatic bone defect should be corrected in order to avoid functional repercussions.

Abstract

The authors examine one of the most difficult problems of orthopedic surgery: the treatment of post-traumatic bone defects of the limbs. Reconstruction using grafts and transplants is currently one of the most widely used techniques which exploits the possibility that the host organism will incorporate the transplanted bone through a series of complex biological reactions known as osteointegration. The authors analyse the differences with which bone integration occurs in various forms of grafts and the conditions for choosing one of these types of treatment according to the characteristics of the bone defect, underlining that, wherever possible, a posttraumatic bone defect should be corrected in order to avoid functional repercussions.
