Abstract

INTRODUCTIONFractures of the pelvis occur frequently in companion dogs and cats, compromising 20 to 30% of all reported fractures. Of these pelvic fractures, 18 to 46% are of the ilium (Denny , Henry , DeCamp , Brinker , Tomlinson ). Both conservative and surgical management can be utilised to repair iliac fractures. Reported indications for surgical intervention include: narrowing of the pelvic canal, involvement of the weight‐bearing axis, excessive pain, articular fractures, neurologic deficits and nerve impingement (DeCamp , Payne , Lanz ). An assortment of surgical techniques has been reported for the repair of iliac fractures in companion animals (Denny , Henry , DeCamp , Payne , Brinker , Lanz , Tomlinson ). While the tension surface of the ilium is ventromedial (Van Gundy et al. ), lateral plate application is easier and more commonly done (Denny , Henry , DeCamp , Payne , Brinker , Tomlinson ).Screw loosening is common in dogs (26%) and cats (62%) following lateral plating with cuttable plates and dynamic compression plates (DCP) (Breshears et al. , Hamilton et al. ).
