Physeal fracture of the femoral head and neck.

This was a young dog hit by a car in the right hip. It fractured the femoral neck through the physeal growth plate. A triaxial pinning technique was performed surgically and the hip recovered complete. After healing the pins were removed and the hip functioned normally.

X-ray showing the pins in the dog's hip.

Please check back for other case studies.
