Condylar fracture of the cannon bone with axial sesamoid fracture in three horses



Condylar fracture of the cannon bone with axial sesamoid fracture in three horses



Veterinary Record 120(10): 223-225



The case histories of three young Thoroughbred racehorses with displaced lateral condylar fractures combined with an axial fracture of the lateral sesamoid bone are described. In two cases the condylar fracture was repaired surgically but both horses developed severe degenerative joint disease and remained lame. The third horse was destroyed humanely.
