Ischemic necrosis of the femoral head: an experimental rabbit model.

Abstract

To describe the morphology of the proximal femoral epiphysis in a rabbit model from the ischemic insult to the end of the revascularization process. Ischemia of the femoral head was induced in 32 rabbits at the 8th day of life, by sectioning the joint capsule and the ligamentum teres and dislocating the femoral head. Rabbits were sacrificed at 4, 8, 12, 18… (More)
