Muscle separation approach to scapular neck fractures in eight dogs



Muscle separation approach to scapular neck fractures in eight dogs



Veterinary and Comparative Orthopaedics and Traumatology 21(5): 471-473



Objectives: To report on a new surgical approach to scapular neck fractures. Methods: A combined prospective and retrospective study of eight dogs that had sustained a fracture of the scapular neck between 1992 and 2005 was performed. All eight dogs had an internal fixation using a T plate through a muscle separation approach. Retraction of the supraspinatus from the deltoideus and infraspinatus allows an adequate surgical window to enable plating of the scapular neck.
