Project Description

Issi is a 7 month old Siamese who presented to Southpaws having come off second best in an encounter with a tree. Xrays revealed fractures to Issi’s left femur and traumatic ligament instability around the tarsal joint. Issi underwent left femoral neck and left trochanteric avulsion fracture repair with a headless compression screw, pins and a tension band. The surgeries were split into two shorter anaesthetics for Issi’s comfort and he also underwent a partial tarsal fusion for the traumatic ligament instability. With plenty of rest and confinement at home Issi should make a full recovery.
