Effect of QG on the number of AVs in osteocytes in bone callus in mice with osteoporotic fracture. (a) TEM image of representative AVs in osteocytes of the three groups; (b) TEM images of osteocytes of the three groups on POD14, POD28, and POD42, with the white arrows indicating AVs; (c) AV count of the three groups on POD14, POD28, and POD42. The number of AVs was counted in each random scene under TEM scanning, and it was the mean number of AVs in osteocytes (n = 5) in femoral callus in each group. Compared with the NS group, ; compared with the ALN group, .
