BACKGROUND Descriptions of fracture healing almost exclusively deal with shaft fractures and they often emphasize endochondral bone formation. In reality, most fractures occur in metaphyseal cancellous bone. Apart from a study of vertebral fractures, we have not found any histological description of cancellous bone healing in humans. PATIENTS AND METHODS We studied histological biopsies from the central part of 12 distal radial fractures obtained during surgery 6-28 days after the injury… CONTINUE READING
