Key Points • Anatomic fracture reduction is not typically achieved with minimally-invasive fracture repair in small animals. • Indirect fracture reduction is used with minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis to restore limb's length and alignment. • Indirect fracture reduction preserves soft tissue attachment to fracture fragments, speeding healing and reducing complications. • Many techniques are available to facilitate fracture reduction, including hanging the limb, manual traction, distraction table, external fixators, and a fracture distractor.

Abstract

Key Points • Anatomic fracture reduction is not typically achieved with minimally-invasive fracture repair in small animals. • Indirect fracture reduction is used with minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis to restore limb's length and alignment. • Indirect fracture reduction preserves soft tissue attachment to fracture fragments, speeding healing and reducing complications. • Many techniques are available to facilitate fracture reduction, including hanging the limb, manual traction, distraction table, external fixators, and a fracture distractor.
