Abstract

If a plating technique is used, fractures of the radius and ulna are usually stabilised by the application of a plate to the radius, or by the placement of plates on both the radius and ulna. This report describes the treatment of comminuted fractures of the proximal radius and ulna in a young dog by the application of a single plate to the caudal surface of the ulna. Satisfactory healing of both fractures occurred by five weeks after surgery. This approach avoided the difficult surgical approach to the proximal radius, and simplified the management of a dog with multiple fractures in one limb.
