It was a great pleasure to receive the invitation to coordinate the edition of a book devoted to bone grafting surgery from InTech. Bone is the second most frequently transplanted tissue in the human body, after blood. Nearly one million bone graft procedures are performed worldwide each year. Although autologous bone graft remains the gold standard procedure, the pursuit of substitutes, to avoid clinical morbidity, is one of the greatest fields of research nowadays. The initial proposal offered to us, presented the project of an open access book, directed to a broad audience, formed by researchers, students and clinical practitioners.
This project caught our attention because of two important reasons. First, because the breadth of the subject, constituted by bone grafts and bone grafts substitutes, causes it to be partially addressed in isolated chapters inserted in textbooks of different fields, such as orthopedics, neurosurgery, plastic surgery and dentistry. There are only few textbooks focusing specifically the theme, frequently printed editions which are often difficult to acquire. This is the second reason that makes this project so interesting. Also, as an open access online book, it is available everywhere around the world. In addition to allow worldwide reading, this book also has the advantage to put together authors from different continents, with different point of views and different experiences with bone grafting. Leading researchers of Asia, America and European countries contributed as authors. In this book, reader can find chapters from basic principles intended to students, to research results and description of new techniques from which experts can benefit a great deal.
We wish to thank the authors, which contributed with their time and wisdom, to make this project possible. We wish to thank specially the InTech Publishing Process Managers, Jana Sertic and Ivana Zec, for their help and support.
