Histological and radiological characterisation of the MouseFix murine fracture model

R. Steck, M. Ueno, L. Gregory, H. Minehara, M. A. Schuetz & M. Itoman
Problem: To study the molecular biology of fracture healing, murine fracture models are preferred due to the fully mapped genome and the availability of genetically modified mice. Unfortunately, the mechanics of most established fixation techniques for fractured mouse bones are ill-defined; therefore[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
