Bone grafting in small animal orthopaedic surgery
  1. John Innes


Bone grafting is a useful technique for a variety of orthopaedic injuries, but general practitioners may not routinely use it. This article aims to ‘demystify’ the subject of bone grafting and provide step-by-step guides for the harvest of autogenous cancellous bone grafting (grafts taken from the patient), as well as to provide information on the selection and use of ready-to-use allografts (grafts taken from donors of the same species) and other more recent modalities.
