A paper presenting two patients who underwent three-dimensional ridge augmentation using a xenograft in combination with recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor-BB (rhPDGF-BB).  The report suggests that the use of rhPDGF-BB in combination with a deproteinized bovine graft may have the potential to regenerated large three-dimensional alveolar defects in humans.
