To develop a segmental tibial bone defect model for tissue engineering
studies in veterinary orthopedics using single locking compression plate
(LCP) fixation and cast immobilization.
A 3-cm bone defect was created in the right tibia of 18 adult Suffolk sheep.
A 10-hole, 4.5-mm LCP was applied to the dorsomedial aspect of the bone.
Four locking screws were inserted into the proximal and three into the
distal bone fragment. Operated limbs were immobilized… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
