The Effects of Hyaluronan on Tissue Healing after Meniscus Injury and Repair in a Rabbit Model*
To assess the effect of hyaluronan on meniscus injury and repair, we had 35 mature New Zealand White rabbits undergo bilateral meniscus injury and repair (19 in the peripheral region, and 16 in theExpand
