Navicular bones from 30 horses with navicular disease and 95 normal animals were examined radiographically and PM. It was concluded that, in diseased animals, some or all main distal navicular arteries become occluded by thrombi, with a corresponding increase in the number of small arterioles arising from the distal nutrient foramen, and changes in the shape of the foramen.
