OBJECTIVES: To compare elbow congruity in two cohorts of Labrador retrievers affected with either radial incisure or apex fragmentation of the medial coronoid process.
CT evaluation of elbow congruity in dogs: radial incisure versus apical medial coronoid process fragmentation
Femorotibial kinematics in dogs treated with TPLO for cranial cruciate ligament insufficiency: An in vivo fluoroscopic analysis during walking
OBJECTIVE: To determine the ability of tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) to address abnormal femorotibial kinematics caused by cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) rupture during walking in dogs.
STUDY DESIGN: Prospective, clinical.
Neurologic and magnetic resonance imaging features of German Shepherd Dogs with cervical spondylomyelopathy: 10 cases (2006-2018)
OBJECTIVE: To describe the neurologic signs and MRI findings for German Shepherd Dogs (GSDs) with cervical spondylomyelopathy (CSM).
ANIMALS: 10 GSDs with confirmed CSM.
OBJECTIVE: To determine a flexed position for radiographic diagnosis of atlantoaxial instability (AAI) and to identify radiographic measurement cutoffs to differentiate affected dogs from neurologically healthy toy breeds.
STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective case series and prospective case controls.
Evaluation of the geometric accuracy of CT and microcomputed tomography of the articular surface of the distal portion of the radius of cats
OBJECTIVE To evaluate accuracy of articular surfaces determined by use of 2 perpendicular CT orientations, micro-CT, and laser scanning.
SAMPLE 23 cat cadavers.
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.
Accuracy in Determining Canal Flare Index Using Different Radiographical Positions for Imaging Canine Femurs
OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare in vitro accuracy of femoral measurements obtained from different radiographical positions with actual femoral anatomical dimensions in dogs.
PURPOSE: To investigate whether magnetic field-related anisotropies of collagen may be correlated with postmortem findings in animal models.
Objectives The main purpose of this study was to describe the relationship between patellar maximal craniocaudal thickness and femoral trochlear groove depth in normal dogs and to valuate the intra-observer or inter-observer variability of maximal trochlear depth and maximal patellar craniocaudal thickness using computed tomography.
Three-dimensional assessment of the influence of juvenile pubic symphysiodesis on the pelvic geometry of dogs
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the 3-D geometry of canine pelves and to characterize the long-term effects of juvenile pubic symphysiodesis (JPS) on pelvic geometry by comparing the pelvic configuration between littermates that did and did not undergo the procedure.
ANIMALS 24 Labrador Retriever, Golden Retriever, or Labrador Retriever–Golden Retriever crossbred service dogs from 13 litters.
