Guest newyorkgrey Posted February 8, 2016 Share Posted February 8, 2016 Hi, I'm new here. I have two Italian Greyhounds. One broke her leg on Thanksgiving 2015, and the surgeon did not do a good job. It healed with a screw sticking out of the skin. This screw was removed and now they can't get the skin to close up over the plate. They have been paying for everything, but I'm reaching the end of what seems possible here. They are advocating either a skin graft over the plate or removing the plate. Either way seems like a gamble. Any one have experience with fracture plate removal after two months? I'm concerned it will rebreak and we will start all over again. Could they put in a smaller plate? Titanium? Also worried that after too many surgeries the skin will not grow back. Any help at all with nourishing the skin to get it to grow over the plate would be much appreciated. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
