Internal fixation in goats for long bone fracture repair with low cost veterinary Cuttable plate

Author(s):
Vinit Doijode
Abstract:
Study was conducted on six clinical cases of goats with long bone fracture which were subjected to internal fixation with Veterinary Cuttable Plate (VCP). Post –operatively the animals were evaluated for stability of Implant, Weight bearing, Radio graphical healing, Serum Calcium, Phosphorous and Alkaline Phosphatase on 0th, 15th, 30th and 60th day. The implant provided sufficient stability to the fractured fragments except in one case where there was bending of plate. The animals started showing mild to moderate weight bearing from 0th to 15th day however animals showed good weight bearing from 30th to 60th post-operative day. However one animal did not show weight bearing because of Supra scapular nerve paralysis. In radiographs, the periosteal callus was noticed by 15th day and bridging of fracture gap was started from 30th day onwards whereas, complete healing of fracture gap with cortical union was noticed on 60th day. There were increased levels of Serum Calcium, Phosphorus and Alkaline Phosphatase on 15th day, 30th day and 60th day compare to day 0. The Veterinary Cuttable Plate provided sufficient stability at the fracture site and is affordable and economic to use it for internal fixation in goats.
