Clinical Nursing Practice for Fracture Healing Vs. Fracture Merge Cerebral Injury

Hongxia Wang, Xiaoying Bao


This paper aims to observe fracture healing quality in rabbits after cerebral injury and compare it with the subcutaneous fracture healing. Purebred New Zealand white rabbits are randomly chosen as two groups, i.e. fracture merge brain injury group and simple fracture group. For the latter group: under the anesthesia, saw the right ulnar midpiece off rabbit, build a standard right ulnar fracture model. For the former group, repeat the above procedure for right ulnar fracture model, a linear acceleration brain injury model is also built. After anesthesia, place a stainless-steel gasket between the coronal and lambdoidal sutures, wait until the rabbit fully awakens, let it lie prostrate on a sponge mat, and then fall down from a height. The results show that bone mineral density of the fracture merge brain injury group is higher than that of simple fracture group. It is concluded that the healing quality of the fracture merge brain injury group is significantly better than that of simple fracture group. Hence one can see that the high-quality nursing service model can effectively facilitate fracture healing of patients and accelerate the recovery of the function of the ill limb.
