ultrasound (LIPUS) has been used to accelerate the process of fracture repair in humans since it was first reported in 1983 by Xavier and Duarte ( 9 ). In 1994, it was approved in the United States for accelerated healing of certain fresh fractures. By 2000

union may lag behind clinical union in some cases. 5 One method that has been used to achieve union of fractures, osteotomies and fusion, is the application of low intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) therapy ( Table 1 ). 6 The increasing use of
