A biophysical study of posttraumatic ectopic ossification. A case report.

Abstract

Sites of ectopic ossification (EO) due to sports injury in a long-distance runner were biopsied and analyzed. The mineral content was compared to that of normal adult bone and to paraosteoarthropathy (POA) using biophysical methods. The degree of mineralization of bone tissue (DMBT) was employed as an evaluation of maturity of calcified tissue. Fluoride and… (More)
