Pre- Tx notes:
First noted as swelling over the lateral sesamoid Dec 2014, the limited training was stopped and the horse was turned out; April 2015 first ultrasound revealed lateral suspensory branch desmitis - controlled exercise and limited turnout was recommended; serial ultrasound examinations in June and July revealed no real trend except ongoing evidence of enlarged branch with fiber changes noted at the attachment, there was a trend towards enlargement when allowed more turnout time.
