About this book

This second revised and enlarged edition addresses mid-to-late-1990s techniques concerned with the implementation of the AO/ASIF/ system in small animal orthopaedic surgery. Surgeons who have used the system over the years have now knowledge and experience which they have written in this text. The same individuals have designed and modified special implants which are now available to the small animal orthopaedic surgeon. Sections have been added or modified concerned with severe trauma, implant removal and a system for recording fracture type and treatment. The book aims to inform the experienced surgeon of the current situation, and at the same time its is still a basic text for the newcomer to veterinary small animal orthopaedics in general and the AO/ASIF system in particular.


General considerations: basic aspects of internal fixation; implants and their application; preoperative, operative and postoperative guidelines. Fresh fractures: internal fixation of fresh fractures. Reconstructive bone surgery: delayed union and nonunion; osteotomy; arthrodesis; bone transplantation; guidelines for selecting plate and screw size and their removal; removal of implants.
