Abstract

In this case report, it is aimed to inform about the results of operative treatment of Salter-Harris Type I fracture in the left femur condylar, due to dystocia in a lamb, using intramedullary pin.
In the clinical examination of a 2 days old Akkaraman breed male lamb, which was brought with a complaint of lameness, was found unable to use left leg, only able to walk on 3 legs. When the palpation performed, a closed fracture was discovered in the left femur. Radiologic examination revealed a Salter-Harris Type I fracture in the left femur condyle.
Under general anesthesia, Osteosynthesis was performed with intramedullary Steinmann pin to provide reduction of the fracture. On the postoperative PVC splint guided bandage was applied to the extremity. At postoperative 15 day intervals, clinical and radiological examinations were performed. On the 45th day of the controls, it was observed that the lamb was comfortably use the extremity and there was no problem in its walk.
