Transverse stress fracture of the proximal tibia in a cat with non-union patellar fracture

June 30, 2015

“Bubs” presented with a transverse stress fracture to the proximal tibia with a chronic non-union fracture to the patella. She is a lovely cat. Due to the proximity of the joint a polyaxial locking plate was used. In addition we placed a tension band wire under the straight patellar ligament. This was secured with cross pins across the fracture site. She is doing well so far and watch this site for updates.
