Abstract

Objective To evaluate nonsurgical management of type II fractures of the distal phalanx in Standardbred horses. Design Retrospective study of 48 affected horses. Results Most fractures occurred on the lateral palmar process of the left forelimb or the medial palmar process of the right forelimb; 81% of horses were considered sound enough to return to training and 63% raced. Of those returning to racing, 41% competed in >10 races, 37% in 2 to 10 races and 22% in only 1 race. There was no difference in performance before and after fracture. Twenty-four of 25 horses had a bar shoe fitted for > 50% of the treatment phase. Of those horses returning to training without a bar shoe, 89% refractured at the same site. Sixty percent of horses returning to training with a bar shoe raced successfully. The total convalescent time, the time rested in a box and the time spelled in a paddock were similar for horsesreturning to racing and those that did not. The age of the horse had no effect on the ability to return to racing. Conclusion The prognosis for type II fractures of the distal phalanx is guarded. It is advisable to fit a bar shoe on the horse during convalescence. Horses returning to training and racing with a bar shoe appear less likelyto refracture the distal phalanx. Those horses that return to racing can perform at a level similar to that prior to fracture.
