Bone Surgery In Small Animals

By Juan Pablo Juan Pablo Zaera Polo

Bone Surgery In Small Animals PDF. Servet publishes this traumatology manual in which the most common fractures in the canine species and the way to solve them by osteosynthesis are described. The first six chapters are devoted to the general aspects of bone growth and healing, classification of bone fractures and the different types of osseous healing. The following chapters set out the fractures that can occur in the different bones, from the skull to the phalanges, with the various alternatives to address them and the advantages or disadvantages of the different applicable osteosynthesis systems. The information is supplemented by abundant radiographs showing the reader the possible treatment options. Finally, the author includes a chapter of selected clinical cases.
