Investigations into the mechanism of electrical stimulation of bone growth
MetadataShow full item record
Electrical stimulation of bone formation has been demonstrated and reported in the literature by a number of investigators. Results reported were variable with regard to the bone stimulation at the cathode and anode sites. Variations in results were also reported with uti1izatiom of DC, DC pulse and AC stimulation. The intent of this study is to clarify the effects of alternating and direct-pulsed current on bone formation na the periosteum of the calvaria of adult, albino Sprague-Dawley retired breeder rats. The results are discussed with regard to the under]ying electrochemical reactions and electrophoretic effects occurring during the introduction of electrical stimulation into living tissues.
