The use of bone cement (polymethylmethacrylate) for bone fissures or fractures of the tibia in cats

, : The use of bone cement (polymethylmethacrylate) for bone fissures or fractures of the tibia in cats. Revisto do Centro de Ciencias Rurais 19(4): 365-378

A total of 24 cats were divided into 2 groups with 6 young and 6 old animals in each. In group I, resection of a fragment of the median surface of the proximal tibia was carried out and the gap filled with bone cement. In group II, transverse fracture of the distal third of the tibia was followed by internal immobilization with bone cerment and an intramedullary pin. Physical, radiographic and histological examinations were carried out postoperatively.

Low frequency vibration of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) bone cement reduces the viscosity of the cement by shear thinning. The effect of this low frequency vibration on the bone-cement interface was studied using microfocal radiography (MFR) and...
