Osteosynthesis of the proximal bone in a horse: a case study

Języki publikacji



Fractures of the sesamoid bone are quite peculiar and appear mostly in young horses running on race tracks. These injuries are thought to result from excessive distraction forces loaded on the suspensory apparatus during exercise. The most typical are transverse fractures on different levels of the bone. Those fractures are classified as apical, midbody or basilar. Other fractures classified as longitudinal or comminuted are less typical and rarely occur. Apical fractures that involve less than one third of the sesamoid body and small basilar chip fractures are treated successfully by the removal of the fragment. In midbody fractures osteosynthesis is indicated. Successful treatment of one case of the midbody proximal sesamoid bone fracture by means of osteosynthesis using a cortical screw is presented in this study.
