Abstract

An eight-year-old, male, thoracic limb amputee Whippet presented with a traumatic lateral luxation of the scapulohumeral joint. Surgical reduction and stabilisation of the shoulder joint by means of a modified Campbell scapulohumeral prosthesis and capsulorrhaphy was unsuccessful and reluxation of the shoulder joint occurred. Subsequent surgical stabilisation using bicipital tendon transposition and a modified Campbell scapulohumeral encircling prosthesis in combination with a novel body cast / Spica splint resulted in a return to satisfactory function of this limb.
