Abstract

External fixation is an effective method of stabilizing many fractures in veterinary orthopedics, however, it is not foolproof. Although careful attention to the principles of fixator selection and application is the optimal way to minimize complications, they do still occur. Prompt recognition of these complications and appropriate treatment, however, will minimize their effects and result in the successful outcome of fracture healing and normal limb function.
