|Title:||Omentalisation as adjunctive treatment of an infected femoral nonunion fracture: a case report||Authors:||McAlinden, Aidan; Glyde, M.; McAllister, Hester; Kirby, Barbara||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/7595||Date:||1-Oct-2009||Online since:||2016-04-27T14:33:18Z||Abstract:||A three-year-old male working border collie with an infected femoral nonunion fracture was managed in a two-stage procedure involving debridement and omentalisation, followed by stabilisation with a bone plate and an autogenous cancellous bone graft. Osseous union was documented radiographically 16 weeks after surgery. Telephone follow-up one year later revealed the dog had returned to full working function without evidence of lameness. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first clinical case described in the veterinary literature using omentalisation as an adjunct to the management of an infected, biologically inactive nonunion fracture.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||BioMed Central||Journal:||Irish Veterinary Journal||Volume:||62||Issue:||10||Start page:||663||End page:||668||Keywords:||Dog; Femur; Fracture; Infected; Nonunion; Omentalisation; Endothelial growth-factor; Greater omentum; Plate fixation; Osteomyelitis; Dog; Transplantation; Cats; Reconstruction; Angiogenesis; Surgery||DOI:||10.1186/2046-0481-62-10-663||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
