Direct Current Electrical Stimulation Increases the Fusion Rate of Spinal Fusion Cages
Study Design. A randomized experimental evaluation of direct current stimulation in a validated animal model with an experimental control group, using blinded radiographic, biomechanical, histologic,Expand

Bone changes in mucopolysaccharidosis VI in cats and the effects of bone marrow transplantation: mechanical testing of long bones.
Mucopolysaccharidosis VI (MPS VI) is a genetic lysosomal storage disease in which a defect in aryl sulfatase B leads to accumulation of the glycosaminoglycan dermatan sulfate and abnormalities in theExpand

Modelling steady state pulmonary elimination of He, SF6 and CO2: effect of morphometry.
We studied the influence of acinar morphometry on the shape of simulated expirograms computed from a single path convection-diffusion model that includes a source term for gas evolution from theExpand

Effect of pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) on late‐phase osteotomy gap healing in a canine tibial model
The effects of a pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) on late bone healing phases using an osteotomy gap model in the canine mid‐tibia were investigated. A transverse mid‐diaphyseal tibial osteotomyExpand

Risedronate treatment does not increase microdamage in the canine femoral neck.
Cortical and trabecular bone from the femoral neck of 24 adult female beagle dogs was examined for microdamage following 2 years of treatment with risedronate (NE-58095). Specimens of the femoralExpand

In vivo evaluation of calcium sulfate as a bone graft substitute for lumbar spinal fusion.
BACKGROUND CONTEXT Posterolateral fusions of the lumbar spine have nonunion rates as high as 35%. The availability of autologous bone to promote fusion is limited, particularly for multilevelExpand

Histological and mechanical evaluation of self-setting calcium phosphate cements in a sheep vertebral bone void model.
We investigated the histological and compressive properties of three different calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) using a sheep vertebral bone void model. One of the CPCs contained barium sulfate toExpand

Sensitivity of CO2 washout to changes in acinar structure in a single-path model of lung airways
A numerical solution of the convection-diffusion equation with an alveolar source term in a single-path model (SPM) of the lung airways simulates steady state CO2 washout. The SPM is used to examineExpand

Noninvasive recovery of acinar anatomic information from CO2 expirograms
A numerical single path model of respiratory gas exchange with distributed alveolar gas sources was used to estimate the anatomical changes in small peripheral airways such as occur in chronicExpand

Biomechanical evaluation of kyphoplasty with calcium phosphate cement in a 2-functional spinal unit vertebral compression fracture model.
BACKGROUND CONTEXT Kyphoplasty is used to treat vertebral compression fractures (VCFs) by inflating a balloon within the vertebral body (VB) to create a void, thereby reducing the fracture, and thenExpand
