Humerus

Authors: Oliver J Anderson, Kevin J Parsons, Sorrel J Langley-Hobbs

Objective: To report the configuration, risk factors, fixation methods and complication rates after repair of humeral condylar fractures (HCF) in French bulldogs, and report the presence of humeral intracondylar fissures (HIF) in this population as a possible predisposing factor.

Study design: Retrospective clinical cohort study.

Sample population: Forty-four elbows.

Authors: Matthew Simpson, Richard Meeson

Objectives: The aim of this study was to develop guidelines for the optimal location of drill entry and exit points for insertion of a transcondylar screw across the feline humeral condyle.

Objective: Our objectives were to report complications associated with stabilization of long-bone fractures in cats using a 3.5-mm titanium interlocking nail and to examine the influences of signalment, fracture type and fixation evaluations on the occurrence of complications.

Study design: Retrospective clinical study.

Objective: To evaluate long-term clinical outcomes of dogs surgically treated for proximal humeral osteochondrosis (OC).

Study design: Cross-sectional study.

Sample population: Twenty dogs (n = 26 shoulders).

Objective: To design a precontoured plating system for humeral condylar fracture repair in spaniels with humeral intracondylar fissure (HIF) and quantify accuracy of fit of the system on 3D printed bone models.

Study design: Experimental on 3D printed models.

Authors: D Gander Soares, M J Allen, N J Burton

Objectives: To estimate, using CT imaging, differences in the regional bone density of the humeral condyle in Labrador retriever elbows with and without medial coronoid process disease.

Objective The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence, breed predisposition and fracture conformation of humeral condylar fractures (HCF) over a 10-year period. Results were compared with published studies emanating from the United Kingdom exploring effect of breed on HCF.

The objective of this study was to compare the strength and stiffness of various fixation methods applied to the long bones of the rabbit forelimb.

Authors: Georgia Jenkins, Andy P. Moores

Objective To report the incidence of medial epicondylar fissure fracture (MEFF) after medial-to-lateral transcondylar screw placement in dogs with humeral intracondylar fissure (HIF) and to identify risk factors for MEFF.

Study design Retrospective study.

Sample population Seventy-four client-owned dogs (88 elbows).
