Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Fracture and repair of the proximal (first) phalanx of the remaining digit following amputation of the paired digit has not been previously reported. Here, we describe a case of proximal phalangeal fracture in the medial digit following lateral digit amputation through the distal portion of the proximal phalanx (P1) in a young Aberdeen Angus crossbred calf. Successful repair was achieved through external coaptation using a fibreglass cast.
