Abstract

The tensile and histologic properties of healing fractures following 12 months of estrogen deficiency and age matched sham controls in a rat osteopenia model were investigated. A one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to evaluate the differences between the groups at each time point. Assessment of histology, revealed an infiltration of pro-inflammatory cells at 1 week for the OVX group. The capacity for fracture repair was found to decrease with age while the risk of fracture increases greatly with age.
