Z-PLASTY IN ELBOW TUMOUR SURGERY.
A Be Kind To Pets Veterinary Educational Video, sponsored by Toa Payoh Vets.


This video shows the effectives of a surgical procedure called Z-PLASTY. This procedure is used to relieve tension in a mobile area such as the elbow, so that the stitches will not break down after removal of a large elbow tumour. It involves two long skin incisions on opposite sides of a circular wound, undermining the skin and then stitching up the whole area. The end result is a "Z", hence the name Z-PLASTY.
