Abstract

AMENDOLA, Gustavo Frassetto; RAISER, Alceu Gaspar; SOARES, José Mario Doley  and  BECKMANN, Diego Vilibaldo. Biomechanical compressive aspects of canine femoral shafts preserved in 98% glycerin or honey. Cienc. Rural [online]. 2008, vol.38, n.5, pp.1341-1345. ISSN 0103-8478.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-84782008000500022.

This study aimed at evaluating the axial compressive resistance of fresh canine femoral shafts (group F), canine femoral shafts preserved in 98% glycerin (group G) or honey (group M) for a 30-day period. The femoral shafts (50 samples in each group) were submitted to biomechanical evaluation in a machine of axial compression in order to observe the pressure necessary to determine bone fissure. The shafts preserved in 98% glycerin or honey were rehydrated in saline 0.9% before evaluation. Bones stored in 98% glycerin have more resistance than bones preserved in honey and fresh implants presented the worst performance.

Keywords : bone graft; resistance; glycerin; honey.
