In Romania, in the orthopedic veterinary practice, splinting/casting was considered an acceptable treatment of some types of fractures, namely, stable, closed reductible fractures.The greatest advantage of this type of asset is the biological osteosynthesis, favored by indirect reduction, preservation of the blood supply of all fragments, including small ones, which easily can turn into bone sequesters when regional vasculature is impaired. External fixation provided by casts and splints has

Complications that can occur, usually due to improper selection of cases, inaccurate application technique and / or poor postoperative management can be minimized by using the minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis, maintaining the pros of bone healing.
