Abstract

A transverse osteotomy and restabilization with an intramedullary interlocking nail was performed on the right femur in 3 foals and the left femur in 3 foals. The femur was destabilized with a transverse middiaphyseal osteotomy and repaired with a 0.5-in (12.7 mm) interlocking nail. The implanted ...

Abstract

Long oblique diaphyseal osteotomies were created in 14 pairs of femurs from cadaver foals <6 months of age. One bone from each pair was repaired using 2 dynamic compression plates (DP), and the other was repaired using a dynamic compression plate with cable cerclage (CC). Seven pairs were tested in compression and 7 pairs in...
