Fracture Apparatus Design and Protocol Optimization for Closed-stabilized Fractures in Rodents Robert L Zondervan1,2, Mitch Vorce3, Nick Servadio4, Kurt D. Hankenson2 1College of Osteopathic Medicine, Michigan State University, 2Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Michigan Medical School, 3Lymann Briggs College, Michigan State University, 4College of Engineering, Michigan State University The goal of the protocol is to optimize the fracture generation parameters to yield consistent fractures. This protocol accounts for the variations in bone size and morphology that may exist between animals. Additionally, a cost-effective, adjustable fracture apparatus is described.
