Making internal fixation work with limited bone stock
  1. Richard Meeson


Fractures are common in small animal practice and there are many options for managing them. Plates and screws remain a popular means to manage many fractures; however, some fractures are sufficiently close to a joint (juxta-articular), that they limit the amount of bone available to achieve a standard stable plate and screw fixation. This article discusses the options to achieve a stable internal fixation when there is limited bone stock.
