Role of Recombinant Human Bone Morphogenetic Protein-2 on Hindfoot Arthrodesis

Despite advances in understanding bone healing physiology and surgical techniques, delayed union and nonunion still occur after the treatment of hindfoot arthrodesis. There is increasing appeal of bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) owing to the innate osteoinductive abilities of BMPs. Effective treatment with BMPs has been shown in animal studies
