Osteosynthese bei Ziervögeln unter besonderer Berücksichtigung der externen Fixation


Hatt, J M (2009). Osteosynthese bei Ziervögeln unter besonderer Berücksichtigung der externen Fixation. Der praktische Tierarzt, 90(5):398-406.

Abstract

In the treatment of fractures in birds external fixation plays an important role. In birds with a body mass <300 g splints are typically used, whereas in larger birds surgical external skeletal fixation (ESF) is favoured. Type 1 ESF and type 2 ESF are used to treat fractures of ulna and metacarpus and tibiotarsus and tarsometatarsus, respectively. The combination of intramedular pinning and type 1 ESF (IM PIN „Tie in“ ESF) is favoured for the treatment of humeral and femoral fractures. The models of connecting bars used in avian surgery include the Kirschner-Ehmer-System, polymethylacrylates as well as tubular fixators. The F.E.S.S.A. tubular fixator has additional advantages by being especially light weight, having a favourable price and allowing easy addition or removal of pins. The knowledge about the special musculoskeletal anatomy in birds is essential for successful osteosynthesis and includes aspects such as pneumatisation, calcium storage, and an increased tendency for the occurrence of comminuted fractures.

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.
