Abstract:
Type Ia External Skeletal Fixation (Type Ia ESF) was employed in the stabilization of 4 radius-ulna and 2 tibial fractures in dogs. Immediate postoperative radiographs revealed good alignment and apposition of the fracture fragments in all the dogs. The complete weight bearing was ranging from 45th-55th postoperative day. The fixator was found rigid and stable till the completion of bone healing in all the dogs. The mean time of sufficient callus formation was 59.33 ± 2.41 postoperative days. The mean time of the fixator removal was 59.33± 2.41 postoperative days. Slight valgus deformity was observed in one dog and synostosis of radius-ulna was observed in another dog as coplications which did not affect the clinical outcome. Type Ia ESF was well suited for the repair of radius-ulna and also in the repair of long oblique tibial diaphyseal fractures which were supplemented with cerclage wiring in dogs and resulted in good clinical patient outcome with a few negligible minor complications.
