Knockout techniques enable us to expand our knowledge about bonerepair processes. Since they require the use of mice, such studies necessitate the development of special technologies. Mechano-biological reactions play a determining role in fracture healing, and therefore controlled conditions of stability are essential. Achieving fixation with a low-mass implant avoids uncontrolled inertial loading and enables free ambulation. A miniaturised version of conventional internal fixation as used in… CONTINUE READING
