Case Description- An adult male dog (skye terrier breed)affiliated with the trauma history in thoracic limb elbow was referred to the Department of Veterinary Surgery and Radiology of Shahrekord University. Clinical sings included severe lameness of the involved limb, swelling and pain in the palpation and the creation of a crack in the elbow area.
Clinical Findings- In the evaluation of the region's Radiology section, the fracture of the humeral condyle and displacement of the elbow joints was determined.
Treatment and Outcome- The final treatment for surgical intervention was chosen to establish the internal fixation of fracture parts by using the transcondylar lag screw method and then using the screw and plates.
Clinical Relevance- The humeral condylar fractures in the dog is the common fracture cases because the existence supracondylar foramen in the humerus bone, renders the dog prone to such fractures. Humeral condylar fractures can be divided into lateral condylar, medial condylar and intercondylar fractures. Humeral condylar fractures may be seen in any breed of dog although spaniels are commonly affected due to their predisposition to incomplete ossification of the humeral condyle (IOHC). Dogs with a recent humeral condylar fracture present with non-weightbearing thoracic limb lameness. The diagnosis is readily made from orthogonal radiographs. To fixation the fracture parts, using the transcondylar lag screw method whit a Kirschner wire (K-wire). In the intercondylar fractures, using two plates (using a bilateral approach) is attempted to fix the fractured parts.
