The Biological Effects of Implanted Magnetic Fields on the Bone Tissue of Dogs
Altay, O. T. / Kutkam, T. / Koseoglu, O. / Tanyeri, S.
Five titanium caps were implanted in the mandibles of five dogs. Three caps contained Sm-Co mini magnets and two caps were empty. The aim of this study was to determine if implanted magnetic fields had any biological effects on the bone tissue of dogs. At the end of 6 months, the animals were sacrificed and segments containing implants and segments from the side opposite the implants, for control, were removed. Sections were made from the specimens and no pathology was seen upon microscopic examination.
