Reversal of Lesion Score - 11-Yr-Old Warmblood Gelding - US Veterinarian
Case radiographs before and after supplementration with Quinaquanone®
This is an eleven-year-old Warmblood gelding that was admitted to our hospital on 6/25/15 with an acute 3+/5 grade lameness of the right hind limb.
Radiographs confirmed an articular medial wing fracture of the right hind coffin bone (image to left).
Follow up examination and radiographs were taken on 8/05/15. Lameness was no longer present and there was a remarkable evidence of healing at the fracture site (image to right).
NOTE: Coffin bone fractures are known to heal by fibrous union leaving a wide radiolucent fracture line that is evidence of an incomplete healing. There is a narrowing of the fracture line after 60 days, with continued treatment, complete healing will occur.
