Abstract:
The objective of the study was to evaluate the suitability of intramedullary pinning technique for stabilization of tibia fractures in dogs. In this study, a total of 21 animals with 21 fractures were included and stabilized with intramedullary pin. All the fractures were openly reduced. The signalment and history revealed the disease more common in males (76.19%, n=16). The mean age of animals was 1 year 9 months having mean body weight of 15.86 kg. Non-descript and Labrador breeds was having higher incidence. Automobile accident was the major aetiology. In most of the cases initial weight bearing was noticed by 1 to 10 post operative day. Osteomyelitis and seroma formation was seen in 2 and 1 cases respectively. Post-operatively limb function was judged as excellent (9/21), good (7/21), fair (3/21) and poor (2/21). In the final outcome the excellent limb function was found in 42.86% cases.
