From: Optimization of a closed rat tibial fracture model

  Slight Comminuted Non- comminuted P-value
Type of fracture (n) 4 21  
Animal weight (g) 176.75 ± 7.50 189 ± 28.39 0.106
Surgery procedure time (mins) 3.5 ± 1.0 3.97 ± 1.98 0.496
Callus area % 0.81 ± 0.64 0.52 ± 0.32 0.444
1-Anteroposterior (AP) 161.03 ± 5.42 161.56 ± 15.48 0.905
2- Lateral (Lat.) 165.03 ± 7.68 167.77 ± 8.96 0.552
  1. Slight comminuted and non-comminuted fractures have the same values (2-tail t-Test). Data are expressed in means ± SE and important at P < 0.05
