It was decided to perform a
standing repair. The mare was sedated with 2mg detomidine and 2 mg
acepromazine. The wound was lavaged with dilute betadine. Several
moderately large branch vessels required ligation with 2-0 Vicryl. The
extensor muscles were intact but a moderate portion of the superficial
pectoral muscle was severed. The wound extended down to the dorsal
medial aspect of the radius and up to the joint capsule of the elbow
itself. A defect could not be found in the joint capsule.
