Abstract:
A clinical study on elastic stable intramedullary nailing (ESIN) was conducted on six skeletally immature dogs of either gender irrespective of breed with transverse or short oblique mid diaphyseal femoral fractures using Titanium alloy (Ti-6Al-7Nb) nails. Hemato-biochemical parameters were evaluated before surgery, immediately after surgery and on 7th, 14th, 28th and 45th post-operative day. Haematological evaluation revealed no significant variations in all the six dogs. The variations in serum alanine amino transferase and serum creatinine values were statistically non-significant and were within the normal physiological range. Statistically significant elevation in Alkaline phosphatase values was observed from 7th post-operative day with peak value observed on 14th post-operative day and values came back normal by 45th post operative day. There was non-significant increase in the serum calcium and serum phosphorus levels of dogs upto 28th postoperative day and 14th postoperative day respectively and were within normal physiological range.
