New Investigational Interlocking Nail in Comminuted Diaphyseal Tibia Fractures
Comminuted diaphyseal tibial fractures in dogs are extremely difficult to treat. In this recently published article a new and very promising surgical technique is described.

Two dogs were diagnosed with highly comminuted diaphyseal tibial fractures following traumatic incidents. Investigational hybrid interlocking nail (ILN) bolt/external skeletal fixator (ESF) pins were used to repair both fractures.

The surgery was successful, and fractures healed without complications by 6 weeks (case no. 1) and 17 weeks (case no. 2) after surgery.

This article describes the application and the advantages of a new, investigational ILN supplement that was specifically designed to accomplish initial rigid stability and allow progressive destabilization to the fracture repair.

The authors are continuing to study the biomechanical properties of this procedure in order to accurately establish clear recommendations for its use in certain fracture situations.

SMALL ANIMAL PRACTICE

Bacterial contamination in 50% dextrose vials after multiple puncturesmembers
A very important study for daily practice has been undertaken recently: single use 50% dextrose vials were punctured multiple times and stored in various hospital Environments - a common setting in numerous practices. What about the risk of bacterial growth in the vials and the risk for the patients?
