Abstract:

Canines suffering from long bone fractures were immobilized by low density polypropylene (LDPP) splint and fiber glass cast. The study was conducted in clinical cases of 12 dogs suffering from long bone fractures. Animals were divided in two groups viz. Group I: Low density polypropylene (LDPP) splint (N=6) and Group II: Fiber Glass cast (N=6). Dogs immobilized with fiberglass casts attained full mobility and complete weight bearing on fractured limb earlier than the dogs treated with Low density polypropylene (LDPP) splints. The Cost of immobilization in Group II was comparatively higher than the cost of implant in Group I. Comparatively complications were observed more in dogs treated with fiberglass casts than the dogs with low density polypropylene (LDPP) splints.
