Changes in tissue morphology and collagen composition during the repair of cortical bone in the adult chicken.


UNLABELLED An animal model was developed to study the histology and collagen chemistry of healing cortical bone. A hole was cut through the cortex of the mid-shaft of the humerus of the adult chicken, which allowed for repair at a mechanically stable site. After one to two weeks the collagen of the repair tissue, which consisted principally of woven bone… (More)
