Distal third radius and ulna fracture in a young pointer. Radial fracture is reconstructable and so a contoured 3.5mm DCP is used in compression.
Important to slightly OVER contour the plate to the outline of the bone, so that when the screws are all fully tightened the trans-cortex of the bone is equally compressed.
And no, I don’t know why it’s called a plate:rod rather than a plate:pin stabilisation!
This lovely feedback from a retired human orthopaedic theatre nurse has made us all chuckle too
