A novel knee prosthesis model of implant-related osteo- myelitis in rats

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

There have been numerous reports of animal models of osteomyelitis. Very few of these have been prosthesis models that imitate human conditions. We have developed a new rat model of implant-related osteomyelitis that mimics human osteomyelitis, to investigate the pathology of infection after orthopedic implant surgery.
