The previous study suggested that this autograft can be used in the surgical treatment of pterygium.
Due to the lack of structural support and osteoconductive properties, BMAs are often combined with scaffolds including autografts, allografts, ceramics, and implants to achieve spinal fusion.
In the late 1990s, treating 1% of the surface area of the body after burns was estimated to cost US$600 for CEAs cultured on fibrin and US$1350 for autografts cultured on special plastics [58], and costs may have further increased since then.

Similarly, significant results in favor of bevacizumab were found in the conjunctival autograft group (RR 0.48, 95% CI 0.25-0.91, P = 0.022; [P.sub.heterogeneity] = 0.87, [I.sup.2] = 0%) (Figure 3) and the follow-up longer than 12 months group (RR 0.36, 95% CI 0.13-0.99, P = 0.05; [P.sub.heterogeneity] = 0.15, [I.sup.2] = 41%) (Figure 4).
