Abstract

An ilio-femoral external fixator was applied to a 13-year-old male, castrated mixed breed dog with a caudal ventral luxation that persistently luxated following both closed reduction and open reduction with a total hip replacement. The external fixator was placed in order to temporarily maintain reduction during soft tissue healing. Upon removal of the external fixator the dog underwent physical therapy. Reduction was maintained and the dog returned to normal function.
