Introduction
Coxofemoral luxation are the most common encountered luxation in cats. Coxofemoral luxation is the dislocation of the hip joint resulting in displacement of head of the femur with different degrees from the acetabular socket. It is the most frequently seen luxation type in small animals (90%).
Objectives
The aim of this study was to evaluate coxofemoral joint luxation in cats clinically and radiographically, to treat with double-sided modi ed toggle pin technique and to share the early-term outcomes.
Methods
The study material consisted cases of 17 cats
which were brought with complaints of hind limb lameness and diagnosed with coxofemoral luxation by radiography and orthopaedic examination. Radiograms revealed that the luxations of all cases either at right
or left sides were formed craniodorsally. Toggle pins
of different sizes were prepared using Kirschner wires. Approaching the hip joint craniolaterally, luxated coxofemoral joint was allowed to set to its anatomic position, using an apparatus prepared with toggle pin and nylon sutures (USP: 0). Double-sided modi ed toggle pin technique was performed for the treatment.
Results
Cats, which only had luxations were able to use their legs without any problems one day after surgery; although, this time was prolonged in cases having additional orthopaedic problems. However, postoperative clinical and radiographical  ndings were satisfactory in all cases.
Conclusions
As a result, double-sided modi ed toggle pin technique was concluded to be an appropriate method for surgical treatment of coxofemoral luxations in cats, with its satisfactory joint stabilization, quick gain of extremity functions and its compatibility with body tissues.

Introduction
Nine cats with humeral diaphysis fracture were operated using an intramedullary pin tie-in technique with indirect reposition and minimally invasive implants.
Objectives
To observe the healing process after this minimally invasive osteosynthesis.
Methods
The reposition of the bone fragments was performed indirectly, only by palpating through soft tissues. Intramedullary pins and external  xation wires were put through stab incisions only.

Intraoperative  uoroscopic control or distraction devices were not used. Control X-ray examinations were performed just after surgery, and then 4, 6 and 8 weeks post operation.
