Usage of bone morphogenetic protein has seen large fluctuations given the controversy regarding its safety profile. As reemergence of use continues to grow, it is important to evaluate the efficacy and safety of these applications. Additionally, small molecule and peptide alternatives to BMP2 are emerging, and critical analysis of their efficacy and safety is essential. This one-hour NASS 2021 pre-conference webinar is free for all members and nonmembers.
