A Standard Surgical Protocol for a Rabbit Ulnar Osteotomy Model
AbstractCritical size defects in the long bones of rabbits have been used for years as an experimental model for the investigation of different bone substitute materials. However, no standard surgical protocol exists in the literature.
This is a source of misunderstandings and makes results from different studies hardly comparable. This technical note attempts to present a standard surgical technique for the creation of a segmental critical size ulnar defect in the New Zealand white rabbit.
