Percutaneous plate arthrodesis


Pozzi, Antonio; Lewis, Daniel D; Hudson, Caleb C; Kim, Stanley E; Castelli, Emanuele (2020). Percutaneous plate arthrodesis. Veterinary Clinics of North America: Small Animal Practice, 50(1):241-261.

Abstract

Arthrodesis is an elective surgical procedure that aims at eliminating pain and dysfunction by promoting deliberate osseous fusion of the involved joint(s). Percutaneous plating can be used to perform carpal and tarsal arthrodeses in dogs and cats. After cartilage debridement is performed, the plate is introduced through separate plate insertion incisions made remote to the arthrodesis site and advanced along an epiperiosteal tunnel, and screws are inserted through the 3 existing skin incisions. The primary advantage of this technique is a decreased risk of soft-tissue complications, including postoperative swelling, ischemia, and wound dehiscence. Preliminary clinical results have been promising.
