We observed the healing process under rigid external fixation after Salter-Harris type-1 or type-2 physeal separation at the proximal tibia in immature rabbits. Metaphyseal vessels grew across the gap with little delay; the site of separation then came to lie in the metaphysis and was bridged by endochondral ossification. Union was achieved within two days(More)

We have treated an unusual case of a bipartite patella in an adult, which became symptomatic in association with cystic degeneration localized to the patella and a gouty tophus. Although the patient had bilateral bipartite patellae, multiplanar reformation with computed tomography (CT-MPR) clearly(More)

A large animal model that has been frequently used is the sheep,(More)
