This study assessed the efficacy of buccal fat pad-derived stem cells (BFPSCs) with iliac bone block grafting for the treatment of extensive human alveolar ridge defects.

Methods:

Eight patients with extensive jaw atrophy were selected. Gaps between the blocks were filled with freeze-dried bone granules and covered with a Jason® membrane.

Results / Conclusion:

The application of BFPSCs in conjunction with iliac bone block grafts may increase the amount of new bone formation and decrease secondary bone resorption in extensively atrophic jaws.
