The proximal limit of the applied plate is mid-radius. Depending on the stiffness of the plate compared to the stiffness of the bone, this proximal plate location could be a stress-riser. In small dogs, the choice of plate for optimal stiffness is not straightforward. If the plate is too stiff, the healing bone will be stress-protected; leading to delayed healing and osteoporosis. If the plate is insufficiently stiff, then the plate may fail. This can be due to plate bending or cyclic failure and plate breakage.
This would allow adequate screw purchase in the distal segment. Mechanically, plates on the medial and lateral epicondylar ridges would be better. Alternatively, a medial plate, either locking or dynamic compression, could be used. A medial plate could be applied in dynamic compression or load sharing, although access to the butterfly segment would be more difficult. Options for Repair Methods External fixators would not be an appropriate choice. Unilateral fixators are not sufficiently strong and conventional bilateral fixators are not an option for fractures above the elbow (or above the stifle).
In many situations bone healing occurs with minimal callus formation. In fractures where primary bone union is anticipated, such as with dynamic compression or in articular fractures, the fracture lines should become increasingly radiodense and less discernible over time with minimal callus formation. In these cases, lack of callus is desirable. 1 Increased motion will encourage callus formation as an endogenous biological method to stabilize the fracture. This is recognized as secondary bone union and often these fractures heal with an intermediate step of cartilage formation prior to endochondral ossification.
