    ABSTRACT: Supracondylar femoral (SCF) fractures in adult animals present significantlygreater challenges to veterinary orthopedists than do fractures in immature animals in whichthe bone breaks are usually type I or II Salter-Harris physeal fractures. In adult animals, SCFfractures are often unstable because of their distal position and propensity to be comminuted.Because of the composition of the distal femur, minimal bone stock is usually available for im-plant placement. As a result, traditional implants such as intramedullary pins and dynamiccompression plates may not be adequate to stabilize fracture forces. A range of available im-plants offers additional approaches to the management of this relatively uncommon fracture.
