Abstract

Objectives: To describe the outcome, clinical findings, and complications associated with the use of the locking compression plate (LCP) for various types of ulnar fractures in horses. Study Design: Retrospective case series. Sample Population: Client owned horses (n=18). Methods: Medical records,...

Abstract

Objective: To determine the rate of postoperative infection (POI) for internal fixation repaired equine long bone fractures and arthrodeses and identify associated risk factors. Study Design: Case series. Animals: Horses (n=192) with fracture repair of the third metacarpal and metatarsal bones,...

Abstract

Objective: To evaluate if the use of locking head screws (LHS) in the distal holes of a locking compression plate (LCP) applied to the caudal aspect of the ulna to treat equine ulnar fractures is associated with a risk of injury to the lateral cortex of the radius. Study Design: Controlled...

Abstract

Reasons for performing study: Previous olecranon fracture reports contain a small proportion of type 1b fractures, with only a few repaired by tension band plate fixation. Objectives: To evaluate subject details, history, clinical findings and outcome of type 1b olecranon fractures in a large group ...

Abstract

Twenty-two horses with ulnar fractures were treated, using tension band wires alone or tension band wires in combination with pins or cortical bone screws. Age of the horses ranged from 2 weeks to 12 years, and body weight ranged from 68 to 477 kg. Tension band wires alone were used in 7 horses....

Abstract

Long bone fractures in foals are common and in many cases are amenable to current fixation techniques. The goals of management are first and foremost, appropriate first aid in the field to protect the bone and soft tissues from further trauma. An envelope of intact skin overlying the fracture is a...

Abstract

Closed fractures of the proximal aspect of the ulna were repaired in 10 horses ≤6 months of age by application of a hook plate using a tension band principle. Ulnar fractures were classified as type 1A (2 horses), type 1B (4), type 2 (1), type 3 (1) and type 4 (2); all fractures had displacement of ...

Abstract

The mechanical properties of dynamic compression plating, pins and wires tension band, and a prototype grip system repair of equine ulnar fractures were evaluated in an osteotomy model. 15 pairs of the radius and ulna from equine cadavers were used. All bones had an osteotomy performed transversely ...

Abstract

Ulna fractures treated at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine between 1973 and 1983 fell into one of 4 categories of severity: type 1 fractures involved the physeal plate; type 2 fractures involved the olecranon at the level of the anconeal notch (narrowest cross-sectional area ...
