Abstract

A red-tailed hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) was presented with a right midshaft compression fracture of the humerus. The fracture was partially healed, but with significant loss in bone length. This report describes a technique for harvesting autogenous callus, which was utilized with tie-in fixation to reconstruct architecture to repair a cortical defect. This procedure restored the functional length of the humerus.
