Poly(L-lactide) membranes of various pore sizes: microporous, medium pore size (10-20 microns), and large pore size (20-200 microns) were implanted in 15 mature New Zealand female rabbits to cover a 10-mm diaphyseal defect created in the radius. Five rabbits were implanted with each membrane. No internal fixation was used, as it was assumed that the intact ulna splints the radius adequately. Postoperative radiographs revealed the formation of hematoma within the bone defect. At the 2nd week… CONTINUE READING
