Abstract : This final report describes the results of a long-term project conducted for the U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command in which bioresorbable materials for repair of hard-tissue avulsive wounds were developed. The early phase of this project involved the initial experiments leading to the use of granular tricalcium phosphate for osseous repair. This material, developed at Battelle, was investigated at the U.S. Army Institute of Dental Research, as well numerous clinical investigators. The use of napthalene void former for production of porous biomaterials was developed during this project. The later developments of this project involved the development of materials for large-segment repair. Initially, omni-directional, biodegradable materials and later directional biomaterials were developed. Keywords: Dental surgery; Dental postheses; Osteogenesis.
