Vascularized Tail Bone Graft in the Rat

  • Takeo Sempuku

Abstract

Vascularized bone grafts are currently used extensively. The clinically available donor bones, such as the fibula, ilium, rib, scapula, and meta tarsus are divided into two groups: long bones consisting mainly of cortical bone and corticocancellous bone containing significant amounts of cancellous bone. With most previous experimental models, donor tissues were noncancellous long bones, and consequently, the morphologic dynamics of cancellous bone grafts have not been studied.
