Objectives The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate in vivo the response of bone tissue to photobiomodulation when associated with texturized P(VDF-TrFE)/BT in calvaria defects of ovariectomized rats. Materials and methods Wistar Hannover rats were submitted to ovariectomy/control surgery. Calvaria bone defects of 5-mm diameter were performed after 90 days of ovariectomy. The animals were divided into OVX (without laser (L) and membrane), OVX + P(VDF-TrFE)/BT, OVX + P(VDF-TrFE)/BT + L, and OVX + PTFE + L. It was utilized a low-intensity gallium-aluminum-arsenide laser (GaAlAs) with 780-nm wavelength and 30-J/cm(2) energy density in 12 sessions (120 s). Thirty days after the bone defect the animals were euthanized for histological, microtomographic, and molecular evaluation. Quantitative analysis was analyzed by statistical software for p < 0.05. Results Histological parameters showed bone tissue formation at the borders of all group defects. The association of photobiomodulation and texturized P(VDF-TrFE)/BT was not synergistic and did not show significant changes in morphometric analysis and biomarkers gene expression. Nevertheless, texturized P(VDF-TrFE)/BT membrane enhanced bone repair regardless of the association with photobiomodulation therapy, with an increase of connectivity density when compared to the OVX + PTFE + L group. The association of photobiomodulation therapy and PTFE was synergistic, increasing the expression of Runx2, Alp, Bsp, Bglap, Sp7, and Rankl, even though not enough to reflect significance in the morphometric parameters. Conclusions The utilization of texturized P (VDF-TrFE)/BT, regardless of the association with photobiomodulation therapy, enhanced bone repair in an experimental model of osteoporosis. (AU)
