Histopathological evaluation of supracondylar femoral fracture healing in dogs: a comparative study of different techniques of fixation


, : Histopathological evaluation of supracondylar femoral fracture healing in dogs: a comparative study of different techniques of fixation. Indian Journal of Veterinary Pathology 22(2): 104-108

Transverse supracondylar fractures were created in the left femur of 20 adult mongrel dogs. Dogs were then divided into 4 groups and the fracture was immobilized with cross intramedullary pinning (group A), normograde technique of single intramedullary pinning (group B), stainless steel plating (group C) or contoured horn (buffalo) plating (group D). Healing was the slowest in group B, and complications (non-union) were observed in group C.
