A retrospective study was conducted in a single referral centre to evaluate osteoarthritis (OA) progression in hips operated on by triple pelvic osteotomy (TPO) compared to unoperated joints. Fifty-nine operated hips in 41 dogs were included (18 bilateral and 23 unilateral TPO’s). A similar technique was used in all cases. A 30° acetabular ventroversion with concomitant 5mm lateralisation was always accomplished. Iliac osteotomy was stabilised using a contoured “Chancrin’s TPO plate”.
