- Pelvic canal narrowing secondary to pelvic fractures can lead to episodes of recurrent constipation in cats. Triple pelvic osteotomy is considered as a surgical treatment method; however, there is potential for future recurrence of pelvic canal narrowing. This report describes a surgical method using a pelvic symphyseal autograft to keep the distraction of the ischial osteotomy gap to prevent the recurrence of pelvic canal narrowing. A triple pelvic osteotomy was planned to expand the narrow pelvic canal. The cranial ramus of the pubis was cut, and ischiatic and iliac osteotomies were performed. After expanding the ilium, the malunion pelvic symphysis was cut approximately 1 cm and then autografted to the gap of the ischiatic osteotomy line to keep the distraction. The patient showed clinical improvement postoperatively without recurrent pelvic canal narrowing related to triple pelvic osteotomy. However, constipation recurred on post-operative month-5. It was managed conservatively, and subtotal colectomy was performed eventually nine months post-operatively. There were no complications for five months of follow-up. ?
