Fracture of the anconeal process in two cats


Medl, N; Hurter, K (2010). Fracture of the anconeal process in two cats. Veterinary and Comparative Orthopaedics and Traumatology, 23(2):124-127.

Abstract

Two adult Domestic Shorthaired cats were presented with acute forelimb lameness. In one case, there was a history of trauma. A fracture of the anconeal process was diagnosed on the flexed mediolateral radiographs of the elbow in both cats. The fracture was accompanied by a bony avulsion of the tricipital tendon in one animal. Both cats underwent surgical removal of the fractured anconeal process. Follow-up radiographic evaluation was available for one cat six months after treatment; radiographs showed evidence of osteoarthritis. The long-term clinical outcome, based on owner telephone follow-up conducted four and nine years postoperatively, was considered to be satisfactory.
