Abstract:

A domestic pigeon (Columba livia domestica) weighing 500gm with history of right pelvic limb stuck in cage was presented to RVP, IVRI. On presentation, the bird was unable to bear weight on right pelvic limb. A crepitus was felt on palpation at the tibiotasrsal region during physical examination. Radiographic examination confirmed a simple, transverse, distal-diaphyseal fracture of right tibiotarsus. Bird was anaesthetized with ketamine. Surgery was performed for introduction of K-wire to immobilize the fractured bone and external immobilization done to restrict movement. The post-operative follow-up radiograph after four weeks shows complete union of fractured ends. The bird recovered uneventfully with complete weight bearing on affected limb and the K-wire was removed 6 weeks after the surgery. In summary, we concluded that intramedullary pinning under ketamine anaesthesia is a safe technique for the repair of tibiotarsal fracture in pigeons.
