Abstract


A 3-year-old male Thoroughbred serving as a Korean racehorse named RAON PORTEOUS presented with acute lameness concomitant with edema and fever in the right carpal joint after completing a horse race. Through radiological examination using lateromedial oblique, flexed lateromedial oblique and dorsopromixal-dorsodistal oblique views, the horse was diagnosed with a slab fracture in the 3rd carpal bone of right forelimb. The fracture was surgically approached and corrected by applying 4.5 mm leg screw fixation during surgery. At eight months post-surgery, the horse was able to return to racing and has had successful racing performances with two wins and several prizes in the last 8 months. This is the first reported case of the successful use of lag screw fixation surgery in Korea with the horse showing complete recovery from a severe injury that is often considered fatal in a racehorse.
