Abstract

The purpose of the study was to determine how fracture healing occurs in avian species and to document if there are any major differences between medullary and pneumatized bone repair. The avian skeleton with both types of bones in a single species affords an opportunity to evaluate the importance of hemorrhage and bone marrow in the fracture healing process. The general concept of fracture healing in humans is well documented but certain specific aspects of fracture repair remain unclear. Two of these issues are the importance of hemorrhage and the influence of bone marrow in fracture healing. Utilizing correlative studies, we wished to determine if xeroradiographic images reflected histologic changes as healing occurred and to determine if this form of radiographic imaging provides an appropriate monitoring study to assess progress of fracture repair in the clinical circumstance. Correlating the xeroradiographic images with the histologic findings evident of fracture healing was discerned before the actual callus formation occurred. Xeroradiographic imaging was quite helpful in visualizing callus formation and was found to be superior to plain radiographic studies.
