Abstract:

A 1.5 years old male rabbit was presented to Orthopaedics Unit, Department of Veterinary Surgery and Radiology, Madras Veterinary College Teaching Hospital with the history of non-weight bearing lameness on left hindlimb. Clinical examination revealed pain, crepitus and a punctured wound on the tibiotalar joint. Orthogonal view of plain radiography of left hindlimb revealed postero-lateral tibiotalar dislocation. Under general anesthesia, tibiotalar joint was stabilised with intramedullary pin. Arthrodesis at the tibiotalar joint was achieved at 8th week postoperatively. Animal recovered uneventfully.
