“Teddy was presented to Animal Specialty Group of Scottsdale following multiple prior surgeries for a left, closed, transverse, mid-diaphyseal femur fracture by repeated, single, intramedullary pins with subsequent and recurrent migration, loss of fixation, MRSP osteomyelitis and nonunion with severe fracture disease. He hadn’t used the affected leg at any point following injury or the surgeries. Following revision surgery using the I-Loc IM Fixator, Teddy was weight-bearing less than 24 hours postoperatively and has achieved both clinical and radiographic union with resolving infection and excellent mobility and weight bearing function.”
