Abstract

Background: Fracture of the proximal sesamoid bones continues to be the most common fatal musculoskeletal injury in US racehorses. Identifying factors that influence fracture risk could lead to screening techniques to reduce catastrophic injury rates and improve animal welfare. Objectives: To...

Abstract

Objective - To assess individual and combined associations of high-speed exercise and horseshoe characteristics with risk of forelimb proximal sesamoid bone fractures and proximal sesamoid bone midbody fractures in Thoroughbred racehorses. Animals - 269 deceased Thoroughbred racehorses. Procedures...

Abstract

Our objective in this study was to examine the effect of gelatin hydrogel (GH) sheets containing basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) on healing of proximal sesamoid bone transverse fractures in the horse. Ten healthy adult Thoroughbreds were used. The lateral proximal sesamoid bone of the left...

Abstract

A midbody fracture of a proximal sesamoid bone (PSB) is a severe injury, especially in racehorses. Screw fixation may be the only option for horses to return to athletic activity. In a cadaveric biomechanical study, fixation of simulated transverse midbody PSB fractures with a 4.5 mm headless...

Abstract

Fractures of the proximal sesamoid bones (PSBs) range in severity from simple to complex and comminuted and can be articular or nonarticular. The majority of PSB fractures are diagnosed in racehorses, but PSB fractures, especially simple ones, do occur in sport horses undertaking various...

Abstract

Background: Reports of fractures in racehorses have predominantly focused on catastrophic injuries, and there are limited data identifying the location and incidence of fractures that did not result in a fatal outcome. Objective: To describe the nature and the incidence of noncatastrophic and...

Abstract

Reasons for performing study: Studies on arthroscopic removal of apical proximal sesamoid fracture fragments in Thoroughbred (TB) horses age ≥2 years have reported a high success rate. However, there are no reports documenting the racing prognosis of TB horses that undergo such surgery as weanlings ...

Abstract

Objective: To compare the biomechanical properties of a hybrid locking compression plate (LCP) construct with the compression screw technique as a treatment for transverse mid-body proximal sesamoid bone fractures. Methods: Ten paired forelimbs from abattoir horses were used. The medial proximal ...

Abstract

This paper aims at the presentation of bone pathology in horses that may significantly limit the animal activity. The pathologies of proximal sesamoid bones are quite commonly causing lameness in horses. Fractures and inflammations have been well described among racehorses and the proximal sesamoid ...

AbstractFull Text

This retrospective study aimed to determine the incidence of fractures affecting the distal limbs of racehorses and their outcomes. A total of 387 radiographs each showing at least one significant bone lesion were examined. These radiographs were from racehorses examined in the period starting 1st...
