Table 1 Biomechanical characterization of the osteotomized tibiae (torsional load and stiffness, as % of contralateral intact tibia, mean ± SD) compared to previously collected data for the fracture model.

From: Characterization of a rat osteotomy model with impaired healing

Treatment Torsional load Stiffness n =
Osteotomy 28d 15.1 ± 6.0 11.1 ± 9.1 3
Fracture 28d 69.0 ± 26.0 61.1 ± 44.5 9
Osteotomy 42d 29.3 ± 21.8 19.0 ± 15.8 6
Fracture 42d 129.3 ± 42.6 * 105.1 ± 38.6 * 8
Osteotomy 84d 48.0 ± 20.6 22.7 ± 12.9 5
Fracture 84d 173.9 ± 64.0 * 153.2 ± 53.8 * 8
  1. Asterisks indicate significant differences versus the respective osteotomy groups. Due to the small sample size of osteotomized animals the statistical test for 28 d was not performed.
