Figure 6

Evaluation of biomechanical changes in bone defect segments repaired with biomechanical scaffolds of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells loaded with lithium-doped heterogeneous white bone. (A) Segment stiffness of bone defects in each group at 4 and 8 weeks after the surgery, *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01; (B) The ultimate load of bone defect segments in each group at 4 and 8 weeks after the surgery, *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01. Three samples were taken from each group for analysis, and the data were plotted in the format of mean ± standard deviation.
