CE Most feline pelvic fractures are mechanically unstable because the pelvis typically sustains multiple fractures simultaneously, including fractures of a weight-bearing region. Axial displacement of the ilium and acetabulum combined with formation of bony callus can result in narrowing of the pelvic canal, leading to eventual obstipation and megacolon. If constipation is present for more than 6 months, subtotal colectomy is indicated because of irreversible damage to the colon. Pelvic… 
Pelvic Symphyseal Distraction Osteotomy for Constipation Management Secondary to Pelvic Stenosis
TLDR
Pelvic symphyseal distraction osteotomy and iliac wedge osteotomy may prove to be a useful surgical procedure to treat pelvic canal stenosis that is caused by pelvic fracture malunion.
Triple Pelvic Osteotomy Fixed with Lag Screw for the Treatment of Pelvic Canal Stenosis in Five Cats.
TLDR
The use of lag screw fixed triple pelvic osteotomy resulted in widening of the pelvic canal and led to a satisfactory outcome with no major complications, which is fast, requires no expensive implants and it is relatively straightforward.
Management and long-term outcome of pelvic fractures: a retrospective study of 43 cats
TLDR
No clear correlation between the degree of narrowing of the pelvic canal up to −50%, or whether conservative treatment was opted for, and the development of constipation was found, and no clear relationship with pelvic canal narrowing could be found when considering narrowing of up to−50% in both surgical and conservative groups.
Composite Fixation of Comminuted Ilial Wing Fractures in Cats: Three Cases

TLDR
This technique provided a quick and highly adaptable means of stabilising this fracture configuration, as well as restoring pelvic symmetry, when limited buttressing support and bone stock were available cranial and ventral to the acetabulum.
Treatment of Pelvic Stenosis with Heterologous Graft and Subtotal Colectomy in a Cat
TLDR
The combination of procedures adopted for distraction of the pelvic symphysis and subsequent subtotal colectomy allowed adequate recovery of the animal without relapses during a follow-up period of five years.
Subcolectomy and symphyseal distraction-osteotomy using a spacer of spirally fashioned orthopedic wire: a treatment option for cats with pelvic canal stenosis, megacolon and obstipation
TLDR
The preliminary clinical application of the adapted pelvic distraction technique is relevant for allowing the appropriate correction of a stenosis of the pelvic girdle and its consequences, representing a major technical and scientific innovation in the correction.
Use of Y-shaped TPLO plates for the stabilization of supracotyloid ilial fractures in four dogs and one cat.
TLDR
The use of TPLO Y-shaped plates for supracotyloid ilial fractures allows good fracture reduction and fixation with a minimal approach and few postoperative complications.
External fixator for the treatment of narrowed pelvic canal in a cat
TLDR
This case report represents the first surgical description and clinical outcome of thewidening of thepelvic canal in cats using an external skeletal fixator and led to the widening of the pelvic canal using a minimally invasive procedure.
Radiographic lumbosacral vertebral abnormalities and constipation in cats
TLDR
It is elucidated that cats with abnormal lumbar vertebral columns were more likely to have problems with distal gastrointestinal tracts than those without and were also at risk of large bowel abnormalities.
DIAGNOSIS AND THERAPY OF ACQUIRED MEGACOLON IN DOGS PROKI
Megacolon refers to an abnormal dilatation of the colon. This condition occurs in both humans and animals. Although it seems to be more common in cats, megacolon may also occur in dogs. However, data

TLDR
Pelvic fractures are commonly observed in cats after automobile-induced trauma and frequently affect other organ systems and timely and precise surgical intervention is necessary to impart a favorable prognosis.

TLDR
Surgical widening of the pelvic canal helped eliminate signs of obstruction when signs were of less than 6 months' duration and when signs of obstipation had continued for a longer period, and megacolon had developed, such treatment was minimally effective.

TLDR
Removal of the colon has been used successfully to treat chronic constipation and megacolon associated with mechanical obstruction of the pelvic canal caused by stenosis from malunion of pelvic fractures and colectomy has minimal long-term effects on enteric function in cats.
