Background. Metal intraosseous implants cause disturbances in tissue bioelectrity.
Material and methods. Our research involved a group of 28 patients treated by distractive osteogenesis and 12 dogs treated for long bone fractures with external fixation.
Results. During the process of limb lengthening excessive electrical potentials were generated, considerably exceeding the physiological level.
Conclusions. The observed effect may have a negative effect on osteogenesis and remodeling of the regenerating bone. The application of an external fixator did not significantly increase electrical potentials in animals.
