Absence of posttraumatic arthritis following intraarticular fracture in the MRL/MpJ mouse.
Journal Academic Article, Research Support, N.I.H., Extramural
Posttraumatic arthritis is a frequent long-term complication of intraarticular fractures. A model of a closed intraarticular fracture in C57BL/6 mice that progresses to posttraumatic arthritis has been developed. The MRL/MpJ mouse has shown unique regenerative abilities in response to injury. The objective of this study was to determine if the MRL/MpJ mouse is protected from posttraumatic arthritis after intraarticular fractures.
