Alendronate preserves femoral head shape and height/length ratios in an experimental rat model: A computer-assisted analysis

Abstract

BACKGROUND Surgical osteonecrosis of the rat femoral head was induced by detaching the ligamentum teres and stripping the femoral neck periosteum. Bone and marrow necrosis were found from the fifth postoperative day and replaced by creeping substitution. Osteonecrosis of the femoral head results in the flattening to various degrees of roundness and… (More)
