a and b illustrates intraoperative plain X-ray controls via c-arm after intramedullary pinning and after the fracture. The second row displays (c = dorsal, d = ventral) macroscpic, (e) scout view and (f) 3D coronar μCT (callus blue and semitransparent, original cortical bone grey) post mortem controls. g shows a histological overview image (10×, details: Fig. 4a) and h a corresponding half-sliced 3D coronar μCT reconstruction. All images represent the same specimen of the diclofenac group. Macroscopically, no diastasis of the fracture gap is detectable. However, the tissue type can only be assumed. In contrast, radiologically, a diastasis of the fracture gap and a dislocatio ad latum with wedge-shaped defects is seen. Additionally, histology demonstrates fibrous connective tissue
