    Abstract: Background: During the last decades, our understanding of fracture healing has evolved rapidly. Bone can heal without forming a fibrous scar and, as such, the process of fracture healing recapitulates bone development and may be considered a form of tissue regeneration. The cell and tissue proliferation and differentiation processes involved in fra... Show More
