Summary of Overall Candidate Performance
An ultrasound exam of the region showed involvement of the superficial digital flexor tendon and severe distension of the calcaneal bursa. Centesis of the intertendinous calcanean bursa confirmed sepsis and the patient underwent repeated surgical procedures to lavage the bursa and debride infected bone. A tract from the skin wound to the region of calcaneal bone lysis was confirmed. Recovery was prolonged, with the patient developing laminitis in the contralateral limb.
