    Abstract

    © 2017 2017 Future Medicine Ltd. Current methods for diagnosis of bone healing after treatment of trauma injuries rely on clinical findings and the use of imaging methodologies that provide conclusive results but only at mid/long-term post-intervention. In this Perspective we present and discuss incipient evidence on biomarkers that may serve for monitoring the progression of bone healing as well as predicting eventual nonunion outcomes.
