Fractures of the distal phalanx in the horse

Yovich, J.V. (1989) Fractures of the distal phalanx in the horse. The Veterinary clinics of North America. Equine practice, 5 (1). pp. 145-60.


Fractures of the distal phalanx are an important cause of lameness referrable to the foot. Depending on the fracture configuration and articular involvement, conservative or surgical treatment may be required. Fractures of the distal phalanx have been divided into six categories based on fracture configuration. Discussion of clinical features, management, and prognosis for horses with distal phalangeal fractures is presented for each fracture type.
