Abstract

A canine tibia defect model was developed to investigate the mechanical-biological interaction during defect healing. The resultant model provides a quick healing period, large strain gradients, a plane symmetric strain distribution, and the ability to serve as a test-bed to investigate the efficacy of other factors. This article describes the model and proceeds to investigate the hypothesis that bone defect repair is influenced by the stress/strain distribution within the intact cortical bone surrounding the defect.
