Abstract

The literature concerning angular limb deformities (ALD) in the foal has been reviewed. In this review the condition of angular limb deformities has been defined in its clinical presentation and radiological appearance. The various treatments and aetiopathogenesis have been considered. The accepted nomenclature has been adhered to. Ten clinical cases are described in an effort to illustrate the variability in both the presentation and treatment. A need for further standardization of the clinical approach has been discussed along with the need for objective criticism of management and treatment techniques and their implementation.
