Premature closure of the distal radial physis in an 8-month old Rottweiler
An 8-month-old male, intact Rottweiler was presented to the Orthopedia Surgery Service at the Cornell University Hospital for Animals (CUHA) with a 2-month history of progressive left forelimb lameness. Radiography revealed symmetric premature closure of the left distal radial physis with subsequent humeroradial and humeroulnar subluxation. A static radial osteotomy precedure was performed and congruency of the elbow joint was restored.
