A 4 yr old female neutered Labrador retriever was referred with a history of left hind-limb lameness and an acute, nonpainful, subcutaneous mass on the medial aspect of the left stifle.
A mismatch of planning and achieved tibial plateau angle in cranial closing wedge surgery: An in silico and clinical evaluation of 100 cases
Objective: (1) To determine whether Oxley's modified cranial closing wedge osteotomy (CCWO) results in a tibial plateau angle (TPA) of 5° in silico, (2) compare in silico to clinical postoperative TPA and (3) determine the impact of ostectomy distalization in silico.
Study design: Cross-sectional retrospective radiographic in silico study.
Objective: To describe a caudomedial instrumental portal for caudal pole meniscectomy (CPM).
Study design: Experimental ex-vivo study.
Sample population: Ten cadaveric hindlimbs of 10 large breed dogs.
Medial patellar luxation grade IV according to the Singleton system can be classified into skeletally immature and skeletally matured types
Objective: To determine the signalment and musculoskeletal morphology of small-breed dogs affected by medial patellar luxation (MPL) grade IV based on the age of the CT scan.
Animals: 40 small-breed dogs (54 limbs) with MPL grade IV.
Morphologic impact of four surgical techniques to correct excessive tibial plateau angle in dogs: A theoretical radiographic analysis
Objective: To determine morphologic differences between four tibial osteotomy techniques used to correct excessive tibial plateau angle (eTPA).
Study design: Retrospective radiographic analysis.
Sample population: Sixteen dogs (27 tibias) with eTPA.
Diagnosis of medial meniscal lesions in the canine stifle using multidetector computed tomographic positive-contrast arthrography
Objective: To assess diagnostic value and clinical utility of multidetector computed tomographic positive contrast arthrography (CTA) for meniscal lesions in dogs.
Study design: Prospective case series.
Study population: Client-owned dogs (n = 55) with cranial cruciate ligament injuries.
Cranial cruciate ligament avulsion due to osteochondrosis dissecans of the stifle joint in a golden retriever dog
An 8-month-old, entire, male, 32-kg golden retriever dog was presented with a grade 4/5 right hindlimb lameness. No history of trauma or injury was noted and the clinical symptoms had appeared suddenly.
Radiographic Comparison of Virtual Surgical Corrective Options for Excessive Tibial Plateau Angle in the Dog
Objective: The main aim of this study is to compare the impact of six proximal tibial osteotomies on the geometry and alignment of tibias with and without excessive tibial plateau angle (TPA).
Arthroscopic Treatment of Chronic Cruciate Ligament Rupture in the Dog without Stifle Stabilization: 13 Cases (2001-2020)
Objective: The objective was to study clinical outcomes in dogs with chronic cruciate ligament rupture (CR) treated with palliative arthroscopy as the sole surgical treatment.
Comparative kinetic and kinematic evaluation of TPLO and TPLO combined with extra-articular lateral augmentation: A biomechanical study
Objectives: To investigate stifle kinematics and kinetics following TPLO and TPLO combined with an extra-articular lateral augmentation (TPLO-IB) during the tibial compression test (TCT) and the tibial pivot compression test (TPT), applied with an external (eTPT) and an internal moment (iTPT).
Study design: Experimental ex vivo study.
Sample population: Ten cadaveric hindlimbs of dogs weighing 23-40 kg.
