Transcriptional expression of calvarial bone after treatment with low-intensity ultrasound: an in vitro study.

The capacity to reossify a calvarial bone defect is very small in mature animals and in humans greater than 2 y of age. The clinical treatment of injured tissue sites of bones by low-intensity pulsed ultrasound is widespread, but little is known about the precise effects of ultrasound on the fundamental processes that promote repair and regeneration.
