Stabilisation of distal diaphyseal/metaphyseal fractures or osteotomies of the tibia and the radius is challenging due to the small fragment size, with innovative implants and external skeletal fixation systems described for their management. Hybrid external skeletal fixation is a novel external fixation system for use in small animals. This case series describes the management of distal diaphyseal fractures with IMEX-SK hybrid external skeletal fixation in three canine patients. Fracture… CONTINUE READING
