Abstract:

The benefits of various minerals and vitamins on fracture healing have been demonstrated in animal models. Vitamin C is an essential substance in fracture healing but has not been studied previously on an experimental basis. Sixteen rats were grouped randomly into control and vitamin C-supplemented groups. The right tibias of all rats were fractured by digital manipulation. One group received single high dose of vitamin C intramuscularly. On the 5th, 10th, 15th, and 20th days, two rats from each group were killed and the tibias examined under light microscopy. It was seen that the vitamin C-supplemented group went through the stages of fracture healing faster compared with the control group.
