Minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis: radius and ulna


Hudson, Caleb C; Lewis, Daniel D; Pozzi, Antonio (2020). Minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis: radius and ulna. Veterinary Clinics of North America: Small Animal Practice, 50(1):135-153.

Abstract

Minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) is a biologically friendly approach to fracture reduction and stabilization that is applicable to many radius and ulna fractures in small animals. An appropriate knowledge of the anatomy of the antebrachium and careful preoperative planning are essential. This article describes the MIPO technique, which entails stabilization of the fractured radius with a bone plate and screws that are applied without performing an extensive open surgical approach. This technique results in good outcomes, including a rapid time to union and return of function.
