Abstract

We report our experience in the use of cancellous bone grafts and stimulation with pulsing electromagnetic fields (PEMFs) in the treatment of acquired pseudarthrosis in 28 patients, including 17 patients with active infections. Stimulation was begun immediately after the grafting, and all patients healed in an average time of 4 months.
