Clinical evaluation of tarsocrural luxation with malleolus fracture surgical treatment in dogs: A case series
Abstract:
The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term outcome of treatment using Kirschner wires and tensioning bands for tarsocrural luxation with malleolus fractures resulting from trauma in dogs. Eight dogs with tarsocrural luxation due to malleolus fracture were selected. Following intrathecal anesthesia, the malleolus bone was returned to its normal position using two Kirschner wires and tension bands. Polyester fishing line was used as an artificial band for reconstruction of the ruptured lateral and medial collateral ligaments. These cases were able to walk and run smoothly. Consequently, it can be preferred to the tensioning band with Kirschner wires for malleolus fracture since an artificial band can be created using fishing line to replace the lateral and medial collateral ligament as was observed in our cases.
