Lag screw fixation of noncomminuted sagittal fractures of the proximal phalanx in racehorses: 59 cases (1973-1991)






Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 206(8): 1195-1199

Lag screw fixation of noncomminuted sagittal fractures of the proximal phalanx in racehorses: 59 cases (1973-1991)

Medical records of 59 racehorses with noncomminuted midsagittal proximal phalanx fractures repaired by lag screw fixation between 1973 and 1991 were reviewed. Fractures were classified as short incomplete fractures (7), long incomplete fractures (32), complete fractures extending into the proximal interphalangeal joint (13), and complete fractures extending through the lateral cortex of the proximal phalanx (7).

One was treated by closed reduction and Kirschner wire fixation and the second treated by open reduction and lag screw fixation. An...
