Use of computed tomography to evaluate a fracture associated with a subchondral pedal bone cyst in a horse


Del Chicca, Francesca; Kümmerle, Jan; Ossent, Pete; Nitzl, Dagmar; Fürst, Anton; Ohlerth, Stefanie (2008). Use of computed tomography to evaluate a fracture associated with a subchondral pedal bone cyst in a horse. Equine Veterinary Education, 20(10):515-519.

Abstract

The radiological examination of bone lesions can be challenging, considering the complex superimposition of the 3D anatomy of a region on to a 2D image. This report describes the findings achievable with different diagnostic imaging modalities (radiography, arthrography, spiral computed tomography) and the correlation with the post mortem and histopathological findings in a horse with a fracture associated with an osseous cyst-like lesion in the third phalanx. CT was highly superior to radiography to evaluate the spatial configuration and completeness of the fracture, relationship between the fracture and osseous cyst-like lesion, architecture of the cyst, presence of its communication with the joint and secondary degenerative joint disease. In conclusion, CT represents an asset in these cases for an accurate prognosis and therapy.

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.
