In a review of 91 cases of laminitis in horses admitted to the Michigan State University Veterinary Clinical Center between January 1, 1973 and December 30, 1978, cases were classified into four categories on the basis of return to athletic function. The degree of pedal bone rotation was inversely correlated with return to athletic performance.
