Tissues formed during distraction osteogenesis in the rabbit are determined by the distraction rate: localization of the cells that express the mRNAs and the distribution of types I and II collagens.

Abstract:

An experimental model of leg lengthening was used to study the morphology of, the collagenous proteins present, and the collagen genes expressed in the regenerating tissue following 20% lengthening at four different distraction rates. At a distraction rate of 0.3 mm/day (8 weeks distraction), the regenerate consists of intramembranous bone and localized areas of fibrocartilage. At rates of 0.7 (4 weeks) and 1.3 mm/day (2 weeks), the bone that grows from the cut ends of the cortical bone is se...
