Abstract:
In this study, Modified Type II external skeletal fixation was applied to stabilize 6 radius-ulna fractures in dogs. Immediate postoperative radiographs revealed good alignment and apposition of the fracture fragments in all the dogs. Postoperative radiographs showed good callus formation by the 40th to 55th postoperative day in all the dogs. The complete weight bearing was ranging from 25th to the 30th postoperative day. The fixator was found rigid and stable till the completion of bone healing in all the dogs. The mean time of fixator removal was 45 days. Minor pin tract infection was noticed in one dog which was managed by treatment. Modified Type II external skeletal fixation was well suited for the repair of radius-ulna fractures in dogs with a few negligible complications.
