Angular Limb Deformities: Growth Augmentation.

Vet Clin North Am Equine Pract; 33(2): 343-351, 2017 Aug.
Artigo em Inglês | MEDLINE | ID: mdl-28687094
Angular limb deformities are seen in young foals and are defined as lateral or medial deviations of the limb in the frontal plane distal to a particular joint. Several factors can contribute to the development of an angular limb deformity. Early assessment of the level of ossification of the cuboidal bones is critical to avoid complications long term. Although most deviations self-correct with minimal intervention other than modifications in exercise and hoof trimming, some require surgical intervention in the form of growth acceleration or retardation. This article focuses on growth augmentation techniques, such as hemicircumferential transection and elevation.
