Effect of Stabilization on the Healing Process of Femur Fractures in Aged Mice.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The influence of mechanical stability on fracture healing has previously been studied in adult mice, but is poorly understood in aged animals. Therefore, we herein studied the effect of stabilization on the healing process of femur fractures in aged mice. METHODS Twenty-four 18-month-old CD-1 mice were stabilized after midshaft fracture of the… (More)
