A study in vivo of the effects of a static compressive load on the proximal tibial physis in rabbits.


BACKGROUND The effect of compression on the physis is generally defined by the Hueter-Volkmann principle, in which decreased linear growth of the physis results from increased compression. This investigation examined whether mechanically induced compression of rabbit physes causes changes in gene expression, cells, and extracellular components that promote… (More)
