The aim of this study was to examine the evidence behind the use of the composite of bone marrow concentrate and Nano-hydroxyapatite as an alternative to autologous bone graft in the repair of bony defects. The study was conducted on 14 residual surgical non-continuity defects resulting from enucleation of benign odontogenic cysts. The defects were randomly allocated into two groups according to defect filling as follows: Group A (n=7), the defects were grafted using a composite of bone marrow concentrate (BMC) and Nano-hydroxyapatite granules; Group B (n=7), the defects were grafted using autologous bone graft. Radiographic evaluation was done using Cone beam C. T. scan, immediate, six and twelve months post-operatively to assess the volumetric changes of the grafts along the follow-up period. The results of this study revealed that there was no statistically significant difference (p>0.05) between the two groups regarding the percentage of reduction of the graft volume along the follow-up period. In the light of the radiographic results of this study it can be concluded that the use of composite of bone marrow concentrate (BMC) and Nano-hydroxyapatite granules to reconstruct surgical defects is a reliable alternative to autogenous bone graft.
