Radius: fracture repair 01 - LM radiograph

  1. A mid disphyseal transverse simple closed fracture of the radius of a 2 day old thoroughbred foal caused by the mare rolling on the foal during an epidose of colic.
  2. Note the overriding displacement already evident.
  3. It was decided, because of the nature of the fracture, the economic value of the foal and the relatively good prognosis, to undertake repair using plate internal fixation.
