Abstract

Background: Tobacco smoke contains more than 4,000 constituents, but not all of them are reported to have adverse effects on bone healing after distraction osteogenesis. No research on the systemic administration of nicotine has been done on distraction osteogenesis of the weight-bearing long bones of the lower extremity.
