Abstract

In order to study the effect of pure torsional forces upon the rotational development of the growing tibia, 35 immature rabbits underwent torsional loading of one tibia in vivo with a spring-loaded cylinder while the other tibia was a control. The radiographic results showed rotation occurring only at the epiphysial plate. Histologically this was assocaited with angulation of the hypertrophic cartilage columns occurring as little as 24 hours after loading which with longer periods of loading produced angled primary and secondary trabeculae. Radiographic and histological analyses of the diaphysis using tetracycline labelling and Spalteholtz injection techniques failed to show any evidence of cortical remodelling or reorientation of the cortical vessels of a rotational nature, suggesting that rotational modelling occurs solely at the epiphysial plate.

Cardiomyopathy

Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle, that can lead to muscular or electrical dysfunction of the heart. It is often an irreversible disease that is associated with a poor prognosis. There are different causes and classifications of cardiomyopathies. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.
