    Background:The treatment of open fractures of the tibial shaft is often complicated by delayed union and non-union. The objective of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the use of recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2; dibotermin alfa) to accelerate healing of...
