Abstract

The induced membrane technique with BG or BTP graft can achieve bone healing in large bone defects secondary to CO and infected non-union in children and adolescents. The choice of bone substitute is important. Our preliminary results show graft integration and bone healing can be expected sooner if BTP is used as bone void filler.
