Table 4: Lengths of the segmental bone defects. Nineteen procedures were performed in defects smaller than 3 cm in length and six, in defects equal or larger than 3 cm. The final scores (combination of clinical and radiographic analysis) are described. One patient received bilateral intervention. The majority of good and excellent results (scores 4 and 5) were observed in patients with defects equal or smaller than 3 cm in length.
