Title : Elbow subluxation due to asynchronous growth of radius and ulna in the dog.
Authors : A. AUTEFAGE, E. ASIMUS et D. MATHON.
Summary : Physes lesions of radius and ulna are frequent in the dog. They generally involve trauma (the most frequent) or general disease (chondrodystrophy). They induce deformities of the radius and ulna (varus, radius, curvus...) and frequently elbow subluxation due to shortening of radius or ulna. The incongruency of the joint is painful and results in osteoarthritis which is particularly worrying according to the young age of the dogs. Surgical treatment must be performed as soon as possible and aims to restore elbow joint congruency either by shortening or lengthening one of the two bones of the antebrachium.
Keywords : Premature growth plate closure - Distal ulnar physis - Distal radial physis - Proximal radial physis - Elbow subluxation - Chondrodystrophy - Growth plate injury.
