Fluoroscopic-Assisted Olecranon Fracture Repair in Three Dogs

Figure 1

Preoperative radiographs of dog 1. (a) Craniocaudal and (b) mediolateral radiographs showing a closed mildly comminuted short oblique fracture of the left olecranon. The fracture is seen extending into the articular margin of the ulnar trochlear notch, resulting in a proximally displaced olecranon tuber and anconeal process segment. There is a large osseous defect with adjacent mineral fragments in the lateral aspect of the humeral condyle. A linear, incomplete fissure is also seen in the proximal articular margin of the radial head.
