Polycaprolactone (PCL), a synthetic polyester, was investigated as an interpositional material to delay bone healing following partial ulnar ostectomies in dogs. Bone healing did not occur in 6 of 10 ostectomy sites 8 to 24 weeks following surgery in which a PCL cap was placed over the proximal cut ...
