An 8-year-old Polo pony mare was admitted for investigation of lameness related to swelling of the elbow. An intra-articular fragment from the proximo-medial radius was identified on radiographic examination. The fragment was removed arthroscopically under general anaesthesia via a caudo-medial approach to the elbow joint.
