Abstract:

Avulsion fracture is that type of fracture in which the fractured fragment gets pulled away by the tendon attached to the fragment. An invasive fixation method is to be adopted in such a case as, if left untreated will lead to deformity, nonunion, malunion, pain and disability. A six months old malabari goat that was presented with the history of lameness following jumping from a height was diagnosed as avulsion fracture of point of hock. The animal was subject to tension band wiring and immobilization of the affected limb using a gutter splint. The animal was reported to have recovered uneventfully four weeks post operative.
