Cosmetic surgery : reconstructive surgery of a fractured tuber coxae in a show cow
Smith, Jennifer L.
Tubar coxae fractures are the most common pelvic fracture seen in mature cows, often due to a traumatic event. Rarely do they require surgical repair. For the exceptional cow (e.g. a show cow), surgical reduction of the fracture was a difficult procedure owing to an enormous amount of tension placed on the repaired site. Recent developments have allowed surgical reduction of tuber coxae fractures to be considered. One technique is described here along with the the potential complications a surgeon might face as a result of surgical repair.
