Delayed fracture healing and impaired callus structure in OVX mice. a Serum concentrations of E2 of OVX mice and sham mice at 0 DPF. **, p < 0.01 compared with the sham group. n = 10/group. b Three-dimensional reconstructions of the callus of sham and OVX mice at 7, 14, 21, and 28 DPF. DPF, days post-fracture. Arrows, fracture gap. c-e TV, BV and BV/TV of the callus at 7, 14, 21 and 28 DPF were quantified. *, p < 0.05 compared with the sham group. n = 6/group. OVX, ovariectomized; E2, estradiol; DPF, days post-fracture; TV, total volume; BV, bone volume
