1 Bone Morphogenetic Protein But Not Transforming Growth Factor-β Enchances Bone Formation in Canine Diaphyseal Nonunions Implanted with a Biodegradable Composite Polymer*† by JAMES D. HECKMAN, WILLIAM EHLER, BRYAN P. BROOKS, THOMAS B. AUFDEMORTE, CHRISTOPH H. LOHMANN, THANE MORGAN, and BARBARA D. BOYAN J Bone Joint Surg Am Volume 81(12): December 1, 1999 ©1999 by The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc.

2 Fig. 1 Photograph of a three-millimeter-thick microporous-macroporous polylactic acid- polyglycolic acid carrier. JAMES D. HECKMAN et al. J Bone Joint Surg Am 1999;81: ©1999 by The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc.

3 Figs. 2-A through 2-D: Radiographs of the radius of a fourteen-kilogram dog that was treated with implantation of a polylactic acid-polyglycolic acid carrier without growth factors (group A). JAMES D. HECKMAN et al. J Bone Joint Surg Am 1999;81: ©1999 by The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc.

4 Fig. 2-B Three months after the ostectomy, moderately hypertrophic nonunion was evident. JAMES D. HECKMAN et al. J Bone Joint Surg Am 1999;81: ©1999 by The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc.

5 Fig. 2-C Immediately after implantation of the carrier. JAMES D. HECKMAN et al. J Bone Joint Surg Am 1999;81: ©1999 by The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc.

6 Fig. 2-D Three months after implantation of the carrier, no bone-healing was evident and the plate was broken, indicative of persistent motion at the site of the nonunion. JAMES D. HECKMAN et al. J Bone Joint Surg Am 1999;81: ©1999 by The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc.

7 Figs. 3-A through 3-D: Radiographs of the radius of a thirteen-kilogram dog that was treated with implantation of a polylactic acid-polyglycolic acid carrier with fifteen milligrams of BMP (group D). JAMES D. HECKMAN et al. J Bone Joint Surg Am 1999;81: ©1999 by The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc.

8 Fig. 3-B Three months after the ostectomy, hypertrophic nonunion was evident. JAMES D. HECKMAN et al. J Bone Joint Surg Am 1999;81: ©1999 by The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc.

9 Fig. 3-C Immediately after implantation of the carrier. JAMES D. HECKMAN et al. J Bone Joint Surg Am 1999;81: ©1999 by The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc.

10 Fig. 3-D Twelve weeks after implantation of the carrier, there was clear evidence of complete endosteal bridging and some evidence of periosteal bridging. JAMES D. HECKMAN et al. J Bone Joint Surg Am 1999;81: ©1999 by The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc.

11 Figs. 4-A through 4-E: Photomicrographs of paraffin-embedded sections of specimens from the five groups (hematoxylin and eosin; original magnification, x 16). JAMES D. HECKMAN et al. J Bone Joint Surg Am 1999;81: ©1999 by The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc.

12 Fig. 4-B Specimen treated with fifteen milligrams of BMP (group B), showing substantial healing, particularly of the upper 50 percent of the specimen. JAMES D. HECKMAN et al. J Bone Joint Surg Am 1999;81: ©1999 by The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc.

13 Fig. 4-C Specimen treated with 1.5 milligrams of BMP (group C), showing a moderate amount of residual matrix persisting in the upper 50 percent of the nonunion site. JAMES D. HECKMAN et al. J Bone Joint Surg Am 1999;81: ©1999 by The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc.

14 Fig. 4-D Specimen treated with ten nanograms of TGF-β1 combined with fifteen milligrams of BMP (group D), showing appreciable healing. JAMES D. HECKMAN et al. J Bone Joint Surg Am 1999;81: ©1999 by The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc.

15 Fig. 4-E Specimen treated with ten nanograms of TGF-β1 alone (group E), showing fibrous connective tissue with inflammation and focal residual carrier and no bridging of the defect site. JAMES D. HECKMAN et al. J Bone Joint Surg Am 1999;81: ©1999 by The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc.
