Fluoroscopic-Assisted Olecranon Fracture Repair in Three Dogs

Figure 2

Immediate postoperative craniocaudal (a) and lateral (b) radiographs of the left elbow of dog 1. A screw and a Kirschner wire have been placed across the olecranon fracture in a caudocranial direction. This fixation is supported by an eight-hole String-of-Pearls locking plate applied to the lateral olecranon and proximal ulnar diaphysis. Two divergent Kirschner wires are seen stabilizing the osseous fragment in the humeral capitulum. The self-compressing pin and Kirschner wire are seen stabilizing the fissure fracture of the proximal radius.
