Lateral condylar fracture in juvenile patients
Lateral condylar fracture in juvenile patients can occur in many breeds and is generally a result of minor trauma causing separation of an as-yet unfused intercondylar region, with fracture through the overloaded lateral condylar neck.
These fractures carry a very good prognosis after anatomical reconstruction and in small dogs a condylar neck arthrodesis wire and 3.5mm intercondylar screw is generally appropriate for fixation.
In larger dogs, a 4.5mm cortical, or a partially threaded full thickness core screw (marketed by Vet Instrumentation) is appropriate and the lateral condylar neck is better supported with a contoured locking plate.
