Post, C; Guerrero, T; Voss, K; Montavon, P M (2008). Temporary transarticular stabilization with a locking plate for medial shoulder luxation in a dog. Veterinary and Comparative Orthopaedics and Traumatology, 21(2):166-170.
This report describes the temporary fixation of a traumatic shoulder luxation in a large-breed dog using a 3.5-mm Locking Round-Hole Reconstruction Plate (LRHRP) to provide stable internal splinting, allowing healing of the injured ligaments, joint capsule, glenohumeral ligaments, tendons, and muscles for restoration of joint stability. The use of a temporary plate with a locking system should be considered as an option in the treatment of canine shoulder joint luxations with severe tissue damage.
