  1. The foal is in lateral recumbency under general anethesia affected limb uppermost.
  2. The entire limb has been finely clipped and aseptically prepared.
  3. The site of the surgery (elbow 163304 carpus) is covered in a sterile stiction transparent drape and the rest of the limb/body draped aseptically.
  4. A skin imision from elbow to carpus is made between the extensor carpi radialis and common digital extensor muscles on the craniolateral aspect of the limb.
  5. The edge of the skin incision is temporarily sutured to the plastic drape to decrease potential contamination.
