The module on this anatomical area has been authored by Martin Unger (Germany). Matthew J Allen (UK) and Aldo Vezzoni (Italy) acted as editors.
The dog humeral shaft module includes pages on:
More than 200 original illustrations accompany the step-by-step descriptions of the various fixation techniques and approaches.
Furthermore, to help identify the fractures, radiographs of almost all fracture types have been included in the material.
The fixation techniques include a detailed description of locking plates, especially in the context of minimally invasive surgical approaches. The combination of periosteal preservation and the superior stability achievable with direct locking of the screw head into the plate makes this an excellent option for selected humeral shaft fractures.
To most treatments, a case has been added with pre- and postoperative and follow-up x-rays.
This module is exclusively for AO VET members only.
