Objective: The aim of this study was to report the prevalence and risk factors of bilateral meniscal tears during a tibial plateau levelling osteotomy (TPLO).
Tendon and Ligament Injuries
Prevalence and Risk Factors for Bilateral Meniscal Tears Identified during Treatment for Cranial Cruciate Ligament Disease Via TPLO in Dogs
A novel engineered purified exosome product patch for tendon healing: An explant in an ex vivo model
Reducing tendon failure after repair remains a challenge due to its poor intrinsic healing ability. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of a novel tissue-engineered purified exosome product (PEP) patch on tendon healing in a canine ex vivo model.
Short-term outcomes and complications of 65 cases of porous TTA with flange: a prospective clinical study in dogs
Influence of barbed epitendinous sutures combined with a core locking-loop suture to repair experimental flexor tendon lacerations
Objective: To determine the influence of barbed epitendinous sutures (ES) on the biomechanical properties and gap formation of repaired canine tendons.
Study design: Ex vivo, experimental study.
Sample population: Eighty (n = 16/group) canine superficial digital flexor tendons (SDFT).
Effect of partial vs complete circumferential epitendinous suture placement on the biomechanical properties and gap formation of canine cadaveric tendons
Objective: To determine the effect of partial vs complete circumferential epitendinous suture (ES) placement in addition to a core suture on the biomechanical strength and gapping characteristics of repaired canine tendinous constructs.
Study design: Ex vivo, biomechanical study.
Sample population: Thirty-six canine superficial digital flexor tendons.
Objective: To determine the prevalence of subclinical bacteriuria (SBU) in dogs with cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) disease, the clinical variables and clinicopathologic data associated with SBU, and the incidence of surgical site infections (SSI) in dogs with and without SBU.
Study design: Prospective, clinical cohort study.
Animals: One hundred fifty-five dogs with CCL disease.
Comparative Analysis of Vertical Forces in Dogs Affected with Cranial Cruciate Ligament Disease and Tibial Plateau Angles Greater or Less than 25 Degrees
Objective: Our objective was to compare the peak vertical force (PVF) and vertical impulse (VI) between dogs with cranial cruciate ligament disease and a tibial plateau angle (TPA) greater or less than 25 degrees.
In-Vivo Three-Dimensional Knee Kinematics in Goats With Unilateral Anterior Cruciate Ligament Transection
Although the goat is an established animal model in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) research, in-vivo kinematics associated with ACL deficiency have not been previously described in this species.
A New Approach to Treatment Selection in Dogs With Cruciate Ligament Rupture: Patient-Specific Treatment Recommendations
Cranial cruciate ligament rupture is one of the most important diseases in canine orthopedics. Despite the frequent occurrence of the disease and the extensive literature available, there is still controversy about the best treatment method.
Disease-related and Overall Survival in Dogs With Cranial Cruciate Ligament Disease, a Historical Cohort Study
Objective: To analyse the effect of treatment method and other risk factors on survival in dogs with cranial cruciate ligament disease (CCLD).
