Surgical management of long bone fractures in cats using cortical bone allografts preserved in honey

Can Vet J. 2018 Apr;59(4):393-396

This report describes comminuted fractures in 2 cats repaired by stabilization with cortical bone allografts that had been preserved in honey. Both cats exhibited appropriate post-operative weight-bearing. Preservation of bone in honey is a simple and widely available alternative for bone banking. This is the first report of a bone defect in cats repaired with bone preserved in honey.
