Clinical and radiographic examinations of three horses with histories of trauma and/or wounds to the stifle revealed chip fractures from the medial trochlear ridge of the femur of one of them and from the lateral ridges of the femurs of the others. The joints were evaluated and the fragments of bone were removed by arthroscopy. The results were good in all three horses.
