Elbow Arthrodesis Plate 3.5mm/2.7mm
Severe elbow DJD is difficult to manage. Despite advances in elbow replacement, outcomes are not entirely predictable and even when pain free, dogs rarely have a normal gait.
Where funds are limited or elbow replacement has failed, arthrodesis may present a realistic option. The results are a pain free limb, albeit with an abnormal gait.
The single size elbow arthrodesis plate currently available will fit most Labradors and is available either as a non-locking plate or as a non-locking and locking hybrid.
Applied medially with an inbuilt 110˚ bend, the distal segment engages with the ulna.
