Barrier membranes have been extensively used in dentistry to prevent soft tissue down-growth into the bone defects and to promote alveolar ridge augmentation. Previous studies of our group showed that the Poly(vinylidene-trifluoroethylene)/barium titanate composite (PVDF) enhances both the in vitro osteoblastic differentiation and the in vivo bone repair compared with a commercially available polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) membrane. As bone formation may be regulated ...
