Title Clinically Realistic Large Animal Model of Intra-Articular Fracture.

Abstract The primary objective of this project is to develop a novel large animal survival model of intra-articular fracture (IAF) in which all major pathophysiological attributes of corresponding human clinical injuries are realistically replicated, and in which post-traumatic osteoarthritis (OA) predictively develops. Work during the reporting period (Year 1) has yielded definitive protocols to create a large animal survival IAF model and to document/analyze the natural course of fractured experimental joints in this model. In PY-3, documentation/analysis of the natural course data will be continued. Simultaneously, using the protocols established in the last two project years, the 7-day survival study to test the effect of a therapeutic treatment will be pursued.
