Navicular bone disease: Results of treatment using egg‐bar shoeing technique

Navicular bone disease: Results of treatment using egg‐bar shoeing technique Summary Although the diagnostic criteria of navicular disease are generally accepted in practice, their limitations are recognised. However, the authors believe that navicular disease per se is reversible and that only secondary changes like adhesions to the deep flexor tendon or spur formations are irreversible. This hypothesis is supported by the results presented of the effect of the application of an egg‐bar shoe, which caused permanent cessation of signs of navicular disease in more than 50 per cent of treated cases. The egg‐bar shoeing technique can be usefully applied in practice. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Equine Veterinary Journal Wiley

Abstract

Summary Although the diagnostic criteria of navicular disease are generally accepted in practice, their limitations are recognised. However, the authors believe that navicular disease per se is reversible and that only secondary changes like adhesions to the deep flexor tendon or spur formations are irreversible. This hypothesis is supported by the results presented of the effect of the application of an egg‐bar shoe, which caused permanent cessation of signs of navicular disease in more than 50 per cent of treated cases. The egg‐bar shoeing technique can be usefully applied in practice.
