Minimally-invasive plate osteosynthesis of a Salter-Harris type 2 fracture of the proximal phalanx in a filly


van Spijk, Julia N; Fürst, Anton; Del Chicca, Francesca; Ringer, Simone K; Jackson, Michelle Amanada (2015). Minimally-invasive plate osteosynthesis of a Salter-Harris type 2 fracture of the proximal phalanx in a filly. Equine Veterinary Education, 27(4):179-182.

Abstract

A 7-month-old Warmblood filly was referred to the equine hospital because of a Salter-Harris type 2 fracture of the proximal physis of the right hind P1. On admission, the filly had acute grade 3/5 lameness at the walk and diffuse swelling in the area of the right hind proximal phalanx. Radiographs were taken to assess the fracture and plan treatment. Surgical treatment using two 4.5 mm narrow locking compression plates (PIP-LCPs) resulted in fracture stabilisation and rapid healing. This case report suggests that internal fixation using PIP-LCPs is useful for the treatment of Salter-Harris type 2 fractures of the proximal physis of P1 in large foals.

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.
