Evaluation of the effects of electrical stimulation on cartilage repair in adult male rats.

Abstract

This study describes the organization of mature hyaline xiphoid cartilage during repair in animals submitted to electrical current stimulation. Twenty male Wistar rats, 90 days old, were divided into a control group (CG) and a treated group (TG).
