The migration of polymeric particles during degradation of absorbable implants made of polyglycolide was investigated in the cancellous bone of distal rabbit femur by using a transverse osteotomy model. The osteotomy was fixed either with a 4.5 x 25 mm screw or with two 1.5 x 30 mm pins. The histologic sections obtained at 3, 6, 12, and 36 weeks were morphometrically analyzed using polarized-light microscopy. The migration of the polymeric debris into the host-tissues showed two different… CONTINUE READING
