To compare the clinical results, complications and morbidity of osteotomies, secondary cleft repairs and ridge augmentations in which frozen femoral head homologous bone or autologous bone was used, a series of 61 patients with follow-up periods of 1 to 6 years has been reviewed. Long-term clinical observation shows that, with a correct indication and surgical technique, frozen homologous bone is a good alternative to autologous bone in clinical grafting procedures.
