Jackson, Michelle Amanada; Kummer, M; Auer, Jörg A; Ossent, Pete; Paar, M; Fürst, Anton (2011). Severe bilateral physitis with instability and Salter-Harris type 1 fractures in two foals. Equine Veterinary Education, 23(11):543-547.

Abstract

This case report describes the clinical, radiographic,
computed tomographic and post mortem findings in 2
foals with severe bilateral physitis of the distal third
metatarsal bones (Mt3). The foals were admitted because
of bilateral hindlimb lameness of several weeks duration.
Initial examination revealed that the physeal regions of the
distal Mt3 were enlarged, warmer than normal and painful
on palpation. Case 1 was treated conservatively and
discharged but was readmitted 8 weeks later because of
clinical deterioration. In both foals, radiographs showed
plantar dislocation of both epiphyses through the physis
and a Salter-Harris type 1 fracture. The foals were
subjected to euthanasia and a post mortem examination.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
