Adverse effects on rabbit anterior cruciate ligament after knee immobilization: changes in permeability of horseradish peroxidase

Changes in the permeability of horseradih peroxidase (HRP) and the histology of the rabbit anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) caused by knee immobilization were studied. The knees of adult rabbits were immobilized for 2–8 weeks by a long leg cast with the knee flexed at 120°, and some joints were allowed to be remobilized for 4 weeks after 6 or 8 weeks… CONTINUE READING
