3-D Printing Research Creates Model of Equine Neck For Vet Training

Ultrasound guided injections are a common method of treating osteoarthritis in the equine cervical vertebrae. Typically, veterinary students, grad students, interns, faculty and graduate vets train for this procedure using cadavers which is a race against time itself.  Add to that a delay in gaining feedback on the results and the advantages of a 3D printed model become very clear.

Study Links Bone Loss to Proximal Sesamoid Bone Fractures

Other repetitive overuse injuries in horses are known to be bilateral in nature, meaning that they are similar on both sides of the horse, with the more severely affected limb usually incurring the fracture. With this in mind, the study looked at both the fractured PSB and the intact PSB from the opposing limb of the same horse for all of the cases. The researchers hypothesized that horses with PSB fractures would also show evidence of stress in the PSB of the opposite limb and that the bone that sustained the break would show more severe changes than the intact bone.
