Authors: Julie Deprey, Margaux Blondel, Charles Saban, Michel Massenzio, Olivier Gauthier, Pierre Moissonnier, Eric Viguier, Thibaut Cachon

Objective: To describe the mechanical characteristics of a novel angle-stable interlocking nail (NAS-ILN) and compare them to those of a locking compression plate (LCP) by using a gap-fracture model.

Study design: Experimental study.

Sample population: Synthetic bone models.

Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate outcomes and complications of dogs that had pancarpal arthrodesis (PCA) using a titanium hybrid advanced locking plate system (ALPS) and stainless steel hybrid dynamic compression plate (HDCP).

Study design: Retrospective observational study.

The objective of this case series was to report the outcome of a new technique for the surgical treatment of phalangeal fractures in cats and dogs.

Medical records of cats and dogs presented with phalangeal fractures and treated with dowel pinning were retrospectively reviewed.
