Bone growth and remodelling after fracture.

Abstract:

We used a rabbit model to investigate the mechanism by which the angulation of fractures is corrected in children. We produced a transverse proximal tibial fracture in one leg of 12 eight-week-old New Zealand white rabbits and measured bone alignment and length and the patterns of bone growth and remodelling. The angle between the joint surfaces changed rapidly to correct the alignment of the limb as a result of asymmetrical growth of epiphyseal plates. In an adult with closed plates, the ang...
