Abstract:
Minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) has been considered as an alternative to open method of fracture stabilization. It has the advantage of less soft tissue injury compared with open reduction and internal fixation. Minimally invasive approaches ranged from a closed approach under C-arm guidance to an open approach that is limited to incision to ensure proper placement of implant. Through this study, two techniques of minimally invasive bone plating for repair of radius fractures in dogs were evaluated. Animals were divided in two groups and treated with bone plating using C-arm guidance (4) and mini-incision techniques of minimally invasive bone plating (8). It was found that animals with fractures repair using C-arm technique, were able to bear weight on affected limb earlier than animals with fractures repaired using mini-incision MIPO technique. However, proper patient selection is important, as C-arm technique is not feasible for all the patients and fracture types. For cases demanding exact fracture apposition, mini-incision method of bone plating was preferred over close C-arm method. Thus, both the techniques have their benefits in fracture healing.
