Resumen

ABSTRACT

Fractures of the distal humerus that involving the condyles often requires extensive surgical approach for treatment, leading to a prolonged recovery time. In a West Highland White Terrier dog two years old, with a fracture of the lateral humeral condyle portion and elbow luxation, was performed a closed technique for luxation reduction, fracture reduction was performed by digital pressure and percutaneous osteosynthesis by introduction of a Kirschner wire of 2 mm diameter, accompanied by Robert-Jones bandage modified for 6 weeks. Limb function was recovered in the immediate postoperative, the wire was removed six weeks after, non-was observed postoperative complications, and full functional recovery of the limb was clinically evident. This suggests that this technique could be an option in cases of condylar fractures in small-sized dogs.
