15Spinal 6 Dental Surgery Equipment & Instrumentation FitzExcavator Set www.vetinst.com MB Spinal Brace C Many cases of disc disease, spinal fractures or instabilities are not amenable to surgical treatment for a variety of reasons, from the right patient signalment (i.e. age, underlying diseases) to economic considerations. The “MB Spinal Brace” (MBSB) developed by Mark Besancon DVM is designed to help support cases of thoracic and lumbar IVDD, vertebral fractures or instabilities. The durable and comfortable neoprene harnesses encircle the patient at the desired locations and are connected by two parallel adjustable metal rods that lay on the lateral aspects of the chest and abdomen. The MBSB supports and restricts the range of motion of the patient in several planes giving the body a better chance of healing. The expandable metal connection rods can be placed in a neutral position strictly for support, or extended to apply minimal to moderate decompressive forces on the spine. These back braces are commonly used in the human medical field and now they are available for veterinary use. Designed and developed by Noel Fitzpatrick this excavator set includes all the necessary hand instruments for surgical managment of canine intervertebral disc disease. The set consists of 5 cutting instruments: one left ,one right, plus 3 straight instruments 2.00mm, 1.00mm and 0.5mm.
