Ларионова Т.А., Овчинников Е.Н., Столбиков С.А.


The condition of mineral metabolism have been studied using radiation methods in the process of treating 25 patients at the age of 21-60 years with closed fractures of leg lower half. Mineral density was evaluated with «Lunar» bone densitometer, the rate of mineral metabolism and blood flow – with the emission computer tomography of "Siemens" firm. The results obtained evidence the prolongation of the processes of bone formation and bone tissue reorganization after the occurrence of clinically determined fracture union, but with rate decrease dynamically.
