Abstract:
The objective of the study was to evaluate tibial fracture healing by estimation of serum parameters such as calcium, phosphorus and alkaline phosphatase as well as physiological parameters such as heart rate, respiratory rate and rectal temperature in dogs. The present study included a total of 12 dogs with tibial fractures which were divided into 2 groups of 6 dogs each. In group-I, the tibial fractures were repaired using the intramedullary pinning technique. In group-II, the technique of fracture repair used was the intramedullary interlocking nailing technique. In both groups, on the 0th day pre-operatively and on the 15th, 30th and 60th day post-operatively, whole blood was collected and physiological parameters were recorded. Thus, calcium, phosphorus, alkaline phosphatase, heart rate, respiratory rate and rectal temperature were estimated at different stages of fracture healing. Biochemical and physiological parameters alone were insubstantial in the assessment of fracture healing and should be correlated clinically and radiologically for an all-encompassing, accurate evaluation of fracture healing.
