Horn was used as a corticomedullary graft in experimental animals following open operation and fracture to determine its absorbability and its influence on bony union. Microscopic study of cases as late as seven and one-half months after operation revealed little, if any, evidence of absorption of the horn or stimulation of osteogenesis.
