  • Usefulness in bone fracture: A study was undertaken to evaluate the effect of methanolic extract of Cissus quadrangularis (CQ) on the healing process of experimentally fractured radius-ulna of dog. CQ treated animals revealed faster initiation of healing process than the control animals on radiological and histopathological examinations. The treated group also revealed a decrease in serum calcium level to a greater extent than the control group. Healing was almost complete on 21st day of fracture in the treated animals and remained incomplete in the control animals. No significant alteration of serum calcium level was observed on 21st day of fracture in both the groups.
