The aim of this study was to determine the rate of healing of bone tissue correlated with the type of treatment applied at 34 birds, both domestic and wild, presented in the Surgery Clinic between 2005 and 2013, suspected of traumatic orthopedic conditions. In order to remedy these orthopedic disorders it was used either singular fixation methods (bandage / splint, intramedulary nail, external fixator, cerclage) or mixed systems (intramedulary nail + splint / bandage; intramedulary nail + cerclage, external fixator + intramedulary nail). In most cases, we combined methods to counteract the destabilizing forces acting on the fracture. Recent tibiotars, radius and ulna fractures which allowed the application of the biological fixation, involving a closed reduction of bone fragments and a minimally invasive surgical approach, have led to bone healing in a greater proportion. Death of convalescent wild birds was the most common cause for fracture healing failure.
