Plated Cortices and Electric Potentials

  • M. Weigert


The biologic effects of various electric potentials on cortical bone of animals and men were investigated. First typ results of stimulating osseous healing after osteotomy of rabbit tibia by direct current (DC) in the range 3–15 µA are reported. Experiences in stimulating human bone are also reported.
