1. The factors leading to long-bone overgrowth after fracture of the tibia in the growing rat are partly regional in effect and produce overgrowth in the femur of the same limb. 2. As evaluated by the plastic injection technique, vascular-bed hypertrophy after fracture does not appear to be related to the overgrowth phenomenon in the rat. On the other hand, it is possible that arterial-flow changes after fracture may play a part in the production of the growth alterations demonstrated in this… CONTINUE READING
