Case Details

Initial Surgery (April 3, 2024)
Diagnosis and Procedure: Mare presented with a severe right hind dorsal fetlock laceration and trauma. The injury included a torn joint capsule and transected digital extensor tendon. The surgical intervention included:
• Surgical debridement: Removal of damaged tissue to prevent infection.
• Regional limb perfusion: Infusion of 500 mg of Meropenem and 60 cc of saline to deliver antibiotics directly to the affected area.
• Fetlock joint lavage: Cleansing of the joint using Povidone-Iodine in Lactated Ringer’s.
• Vetlen device implantation: Placement of a slow-release antibiotic to manage local infection risk. Wound closure: Skin laceration was closed, although much of the subcutaneous tissue was too damaged to repair fully.
