Low-intensity pulsed ultrasound accelerates bone healing via upregulation of cartilage formation and maturation phases of endchondral bone formation. The current authors evaluated the effect of ultrasound therapy on the repair of full-thickness osteochondral defects. Bilateral, 3.2 mm diameter by 5.0 mm deep osteochondral defects were created in the patellar groove of 106 adult male New Zealand rabbits. The defects were treated with daily low-intensity pulsed ultrasound therapy on the right… CONTINUE READING
