BACKGROUND Patient age is one of many potential risk factors for fracture nonunion. Our hypothesis is that older patients (≥ 60) with fracture risk factors treated with low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) have similar heal rate (HR) to the population as a whole. We evaluate the impact of age in conjunction with other risk factors on HR in LIPUS-treated(More)
We read with interest the recent paper by Biglari et al. [1], which reports a prospective observational study of long bone nonunions treated with low intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS). Of the 61 nonunions included in the study, 20 (32.8 %) were described as showing bone consolidation (‘‘successful treatment’’) following application of LIPUS. Nonunions for(More)
