Subchondral Bone Cyst
Subchondral bone cysts can provoke severe lameness in horses. Equine Clinic de Morette has devoted almost twenty years of experience in the treatment of these Bone cysts. Recently, at the Equine Clinic De Morette, we showed how 92% of our patients treated were able to resume a successful athletic activity.
These horses underwent following surgical procedure: “Translesional fixation with a cortical screw”, which consists in inserting a surgical screw through the “cyst” to promote healing.
