Abstract

Survey of 528 radiographs of radius and ulna fractures selected from archive of Radiology Service of the Surgery Department into the Veterinary Hospital of Veterinary College of the University of Sao Paulo from July 1999 December 2005 we randomly selected the months to analyze. Radius and ulna fractures represent 20.9% of total fractures. 87.1% of these fractures attacked both bones. Transversal fractures were the most common type even in radius (75.5%) than ulna (76.6%), which occurred mainly at distal third radius (72.9%) and ulna (70.1%). Mix-breed dogs (40.2%), between the ages of six months and one year (34.3%), with displacement of axis bone (94.9%) were the most frequent types observed.
