OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the biomechanical properties of three different miniature locking plate systems used to fixate radial and ulnar fractures in toy breed dogs.

OBJECTIVE: To report perspectives of minimally invasive osteosynthesis (MIO) techniques in veterinary surgical practice in 2018.

STUDY DESIGN: Electronic questionnaires.

SAMPLE POPULATION: Diplomates and residents of the American College of Veterinary Surgery and European College of Veterinary Surgery and members of the Veterinary Orthopedic Society.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the contribution of the palmar radiocarpal ligament and the palmar ulnocarpal ligament to canine antebrachiocarpal joint stability.

The dog is the most commonly used large animal model for the study of osteoarthritis. Optimizing methods for assessing cartilage health would prove useful in reducing the number of dogs needed for valid study of osteoarthritis and cartilage repair.

Twelve beagles had critical-sized osteochondral defects created in the medial femoral condyle of both knees. Eight dogs had T1ρ and T2 MRI performed approximately 6 months after defect creation.

OBJECTIVE: To quantitatively evaluate patellofemoral (PF) kinematics during walking in dogs with cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) deficiency treated by tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO).

STUDY DESIGN: Longitudinal observational study.

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to compare outcomes between the tibial plateau levelling osteotomy (TPLO) procedure and a modified tibial tuberosity advancement (TTA Rapid) in dogs with cranial cruciate ligament rupture.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the predictive value of meniscal click for specific meniscal tear morphology.

STUDY DESIGN: Prospective cohort.

ANIMALS: Client-owned dogs (104) with cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) deficiency treated with stifle arthroscopy (111).

OBJECTIVE: To determine the influence of short-term administration of carprofen on bone healing in dogs.

STUDY DESIGN: Randomized controlled experimental study.

ANIMALS: Eighteen purpose-bred sexually mature hound dogs.

OBJECTIVE:  The aim of this study was to report the prevalence and to identify the risk factors associated with postoperative tibial tuberosity fracture following a triple tibial osteotomy. This article also evaluates the outcome of these patients treated conservatively.

The aim of this in-vitro study was to investigate the response of articular cartilage to frictional load when sliding against a metal implant, and identify potential mechanisms of damage to articular cartilage in a metal-on-cartilage pairing.
