Sciatic nerve histomorphometrical study for surgical and conservative techniques of experimental treating canine ischial bone fractures

Антонов Н.И., Варсегова Т.Н.


The histomorphometrical study of sciatic nerves in 27 dogs has revealed the advantage and expediency of treatment of ischial bone fractures surgically using an external fixator in comparison with conservative treatment. Due to early reposition of fragments and to stable fixation the possibility of sciatic nerve recompression is avoided, thereby leading to less damage of the nerve, less manifestation of destructive-and-reparative process, as well as to more successful recovery.
