The purposes of this study were to define the tensile properties of each zone of the rabbit growth plate and to correlate them with the microarchitecture and biochemical composition of the zones. The epiphysis-growth plate-metaphysis complex was obtained from the radius and ulna of 20 8-week-old rabbits. Four dye markers were placed on the growth plate. The complex was loaded to failure with a tensile testing machine, and the strain behavior was recorded simultaneously with a microscope, a… CONTINUE READING
