Re: [RC] Splint bone removal - rides2far@xxxxxxxx

Has anybody had experience with excessive remodeling of bone post  
surgery for splint bone removal?
I am reading that it happens in 30% of cases.

Yes, horse my friends competed had that happen. He had a not so large splint 
that wouldn't set. They removed the piece and he ended up with a really big 
knot where the small splint used to be. It didn't bother him though. He went on 
to have 2000 miles and a Junior National 50 mile championship win.

I had a horse shatter his rear splint in a pasture accident. We had it all 
removed. So far as I know nothing came back (I sold him). He went on to make a 
kid's jumper.
