SDFT Ligament Rupture
A Superficial Digital Flexor Tendon (SDFT) Core Lesion Injury was suffered by a 2 year old Filly on her Left Foreleg on August 13th 2008. Ultrasound Images were taken and Ig2000™ Immune Modulation Laser Therapies on the Ruptured Tendon and Swollen Windpuff areas were started that same day. Ig2000 Therapies were given for 10 minutes a day, 3 times a week (approximately 19 treatments) over a 45 day period. On September 24th 2008 the final Ultrasounds were taken and were observed to be “clear” of any Lesions and the Windpuff had resolved. The horse was declared “sound”, turned out, and sent back to resume her normal training regimen. The horse remains sound and is still “at track” today.
Points of Core Lesion Injury Images 1 & 2 were taken on August 13th 2008, the same day the Injury occurred.
Image 3 was taken on September 24th 2008 after 19 Therapies with the Immunogenic Ig2000, and, within 45 days of the occurrence of the Core Lesion Injury, the horse was declared “sound” and sent back to track.
Note the Density, Uniformity, and Linearity of the new Collagen Fibers laid down (without scarring) during the Lesion healing process, and the reduction from the “normal” average healing time of 12-18 months, to just 45 days.
