Guided tissue regeneration is a technique that uses barrier materials to enhance tissue regeneration. Although previously demonstrated to be an effective way of enhancing craniofacial osteogenesis in several animal models, the ability of guided tissue regeneration to augment bone formation in the context of distraction osteogenesis is unknown. In the current study, the authors applied the principle of guided tissue regeneration to their rat mandibular distraction osteogenesis model in an attempt to enhance bone regeneration.
