Evaluation of biochemical parameters for assessment of fracture healing in dogs
K Manoj Kumar, V Devi Prasad, N Dhana Lakshmi and NKB Raju
Biochemical parameters like serum calcium, inorganic phosphorus, C-reactive protein and alkaline phosphatase were evaluated during fracture healing in 6 dogs with distal femoral diaphyseal fractures, which were stabilized with String of pearls (SOP) locking plates. Statistical analysis revealed a highly significant difference (P<0.01) in serum calcium, serum alkaline phosphatase and C-reactive protein values in different stages of postoperative intervals. There was no significant variation in serum phosphorus level post-operatively and the values were within the normal range
