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

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

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

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

Objective - To describe the characteristics of unilateral mid-body proximal sesamoid bone (PSB) fractures, to determine factors associated with the outcome of horses after surgical repair, and to describe a technique for arthroscopically assisted screw fixation in lag fashion. Study Design -...

Abstract

Objective - To compare mechanical properties and failure characteristics of 2 methods of fixation for repair of a transverse, midbody fracture of the proximal sesamoid bone (PSB): 4.5-mm AO cortical bone screw (AO) placed in lag fashion and 4/5-mm Acutrak® (AT) self-compressing screw. Study Design...

Abstract

To evaluate 2 methods of midbody proximal sesamoid bone repair - fixation by a screw placed in lag fashion and circumferential wire fixation - by comparing yield load and the adjacent soft-tissue strain during monotonic loading, 10 paired equine cadaver forelimbs from race-trained horses were used. ...

Abstract

17 paired (13 repaired, 4 normal) equine cadaver limbs consisting of the suspensory apparatus third metacarpal bone, and first and second phalanges mounted in a loading apparatus were used to test the mechanical properties of transfixation wiring (TW) and screws placed in lag fashion (LS)...

Abstract

Fracture of the proximal sesamoids is common in racehorses. The success of the traditional treatment of removing bone fragments has depended on the fracture: axial fractures usually heal uneventfully, 50% of horses with apical chip fractures return to racing after surgery, but only 5% of those with ...

Abstract

In this group of horses all fractures had resulted in 2 large fragments, and were repaired using this method, because surgical removal would have resulted in disruption of the suspensory apparatus. Based on radiography the fractures were classified into 3 types depending on the site of fracture in...
