External fixation is one of the most versatile treatment options for fracture repair in small animals. The advantages include enhancing both the mechanical and biologic environment for optimal fracture healing. Veterinary external fixation is evolving and there are now improved techniques, better instrumentation and a continuing reduction in the incidence of complications. General veterinary practitioners can master the techniques and equipment costs are low.

This book offers a highly practical guide to the use of linear external fixators in small animal practice. Divided into two sections, the first section reviews essential knowledge and technical details that underpin the successful treatment of a clinical case. The second is a collection of case studies selected to show the range of fracture types and fixator systems available. Within each case there is discussion of treatment options and clinical decision-making. Follow-up radiographs then provide invaluable insight into the normal radiographic appearance of healing and healed fractures.

The authors have put together an intensely practical book that will no doubt prove to be the perfect learning tool for the surgical resident and practising veterinarian.

Key features:

  • A unique approach ensures the book is both practical and easy to read
  • Written to appeal to practising veterinarians world-wide
  • Contains over three hundred high quality radiographs

Structured for detailed study or quick reference
