Abstract

Circumferential wiring was used to repair 12 mid-body fractures and 4 large basilar fractures of proximal sesamoid bones in 15 horses. Eighteen-gauge stainless steel wire was placed around both fragments in 5 horses, and through the proximal fragment and around the distal fragment in 10 horses. The ...
