abstract

  • Our findings suggest that rhBMP-2 is a beneficial adjunct for selected groups of patients undergoing complex ankle arthrodesis. CT is a promising modality in the assessment of bone healing in ankle fusion. A proper randomized controlled trial remains necessary to fully describe the efficacy of rhBMP-2 in accelerating bone healing.
