Abstract:
In this study Minimally Invasive Plate Osteosynthesis (MIPO) technique using Locking Compression Plates (LCP) was employed in the stabilization of 2 tibial and 4 metatarsal fractures in goats. Immediate postoperative radiographs revealed good alignment and apposition of the fracture fragments in all the goats. All the goats showed partial weight bearing from the 1st post-operative day. Full weight bearing was observed between 7th to 30th post-operative days with a mean of 13.6 ±4.11 days. Postoperative radiographs on 60thday revealed complete radiological union in five out of six goats. The MIPO techniue using LCPs in tibial and metatarsal fracture repair, showed remarkable improvement with normal limb function and maintaining good implant stability throughout the treatment period without any complications.
