Similarity of Bone Ingrowth in Rats and Goats: A Bone Chamber Study
Bone ingrowth was higher in both species at 12, compared with 6 weeks (P < 0.01). Tissue ingrowth in general (including soft tissue) was less in rats than in goats at both time periods (P < 0.001). However, bone ingrowth did not differ between species. Thus, when differences in size of an osseous defect are corrected for, there seems to be only little influence of differences in body size.
