Veterinary Tissue Bank co-sponsors with Veterinary Instrumentation

ESVOT workshop on IOHC/HIF and Humeral Condylar Fractures using a novel self-compressing screw

Thursday, 8th September 2016, London


Humeral condylar fractures often involve chronic bony remodelling of the condyle or even humeral condylar fissure which causes a poor biological environment for fracture healing. Sclerosis of the condyle can lead to non-union, and condylar fractures appear to be at a high risk of post-operative infection or screw loosening.

A novel implant has been developed by Dr Ben Walton and Professor John Innes which, in concert with bespoke instrumentation, aims to address some of the particular problems posed by condylar fractures.
