A pilot study investigating the histology and growth factor content of human non-union tissue

Abstract

The reason for the formation of an atrophic non-union is not clear and an altered vascularization as well as a deregulation of endogenous growth factors is hypothesized. To obtain more information, we analysed human non-union tissue regarding the histology and quantity of several growth factors. Tissue from patients with an atrophic non-union (n = 44) or… (More)
