Distraction osteogenesis for segmental bone defect. Physeal change after acute bone shortening followed by gradual lengthening in a rabbit tibia model.

Abstract

We investigated physeal change after acute bone shortening followed by distraction osteogenesis in a rabbit tibia model. Distraction osteogenesis was performed on acutely shortened right rabbit tibia after removing a diaphyseal segment until distraction reached the length of the excised segment. Sixty animals were divided into three groups (n=20) according… (More)
