Abstract

It has been previously demonstrated that low frequency low energy pulsing electromagnetic fields (PEMF) favour bone repair in transcortical holes drilled in the diaphyseal region of metacarpal bone in adult horses1. All phases of osteogenesis are influenced by the exposure to PEMF; in the presence of slow bone turnover the PEMF effect is particularly marked, so much so that it may lead to a 100% increase in the amount of newly deposited bone tissue.
