27 patients requiring forearm osteotomy (ulnar shortening or radial shortening osteotomy) were randomized to determine the effect of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) on bone healing following surgery. Patients were allocated to groups of either postoperative LIPUS therapy or no LIPUS therapy, and were followed-up for up to 24 weeks. Main outcome was radiographic determined bone healing, alo...
