Equine elbow fracture
This horse sustained a kick wound to the right elbow. It presented with a severe lameness. X rays were taken at the yard using our mobile digital radiography system. Images were then emailed to Mr Ian Wright at Newmarket Equine Hospital, Equine Orthopaedic Specialist, for an expert opinion who gave the appropriate advice. The horse was referred to Newmarket Equine Hospital the following day, where he underwent successful advanced surgical fixation.
