Questionnaire: Failure of fracture healing with non-union formation is still a major clinical burden. Angiogenesis is closely linked to bone regeneration, but the role of angiogenesis in non-union formation remains unclear. Because established non-unions have been shown to be well vascularized, we h[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
