Proximal sesamoid: fracture 15 healed - DMPaLO radiograph

= annotation - select to reveal
  1. A dorsomedial palmarolateral oblique radiograph of the LF fetlock of a 4 year old Thoroughbred gelding.
  2. The horse presented with 1/5 lameness at trot; the fetlock was moderately rounded on the palmarodistal aspect and the horse resented flexion of the joint.
  3. A markedly enlarged medial sesamoid bone with a variation in density through the entire bone; these changes in the bone are consistent with a healed fracture most likely occurring as a foal.
