Fixation of metacarpal and metatarsal fractures in greyhounds

, : Fixation of metacarpal and metatarsal fractures in greyhounds. Australian Veterinary Journal 57(5): 205-211

Greyhounds (23) and dogs of other breeds (10) were presented with metacarpal and metatarsal fractures. While in other breeds trauma was the usual cause, in greyhounds the injuries were stress or fatigue fractures. In the greyhounds the fractures occurred mainly in young dogs and were often comminuted. Fifteen cases involved the 5th metacarpal bone of the left foreleg. The fractures were managed by external immobilization (8 cases) or internal fixation mainly with lag screws (14 cases). Of 16 dogs which recovered sufficiently to be trialed, 6 were retired due to poor performance, 2 suffered further fractures and 4 raced in < 10 races each. Four dogs entered in > 10 races each and won 23 of 109 starts.
