Fluoroscopic-Assisted Olecranon Fracture Repair in Three Dogs

Figure 9

Craniocaudal (a) and mediolateral (b) radiographs of the left elbow of dog 3 obtained immediately postoperatively. The olecranon fracture was repaired with a laterally-to-medially directed screw, inserted in lag fashion. The anconeal process is stabilized with one screw inserted in lag fashion and two Kirschner wires, inserted in a caudal-to-cranial orientation. This repair was augmented with a caudally applied eight-hole 2.7 mm locking compression plate, with three screws engaging the proximal olecranon segment and five screws engaging the distal segment.
