The effect of intermittent pneumatic compression on fracture healing.
Journal Article, Research Support, Non-U.S. Gov't
Continuously increased venous pressure has been shown to enhance bone growth, stimulate fracture healing, and prevent bone loss, but also causes soft-tissue breakdown as a result of chronic edema. This study was designed to test the hypothesis that intermittently increased venous pressure improves fracture healing without injuring soft tissue.
