Intramedullary nailing of experimental femoral midshaft osteotomies in cats with biodegradable rods of polylactic acid

, : Intramedullary nailing of experimental femoral midshaft osteotomies in cats with biodegradable rods of polylactic acid. Veterinary and Comparative Orthopaedics and Traumatology 5(2): 71-75

A new extrusion technique has provided rods of left isomeric polylactic acid with strength values comparable to steel, but with a stiffness module similar to that of bone. Rods of diameter 1.1 and 2 mm were used for pinning femoral osteotomies in 4 cats. Over the next 24 weeks all femurs healed, but with slight or moderate angulation or rotation and moderate callus formation.

Growth hormone (GH) responses to the GABA-B agonist baclofen (10 mg) were assessed in six normally cycling, healthy women at three different sex steroid phases of the menstrual cycle: early follicular, pre-ovulatory and luteal. The design was plac...
