Comminuted fracture of the distal sesamoid bone and distal rupture of the deep digital flexor tendon



Comminuted fracture of the distal sesamoid bone and distal rupture of the deep digital flexor tendon



Veterinary Radiology and Ultrasound 46(3): 234-237



A 10-year-old show jumper was evaluated for an acute severe lameness (grade 4 of 5) of the right foreleg. During weight bearing, the toe of the affected limb rotated dorsally suggesting rupture of the deep digital flexor tendon (DDFT). Upon radiographic examination of the hoof, a severe erosion at the flexor surface and a parasagittal fracture of the distal sesamoid bone were found. Ultrasonographic examination confirmed rupture of the DDFT.
