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).
Biomechanical Evaluation of an Autologous Flexor Digitorum Lateralis Graft to Augment the Surgical Repair of Gastrocnemius Tendon Laceration in a Canine Ex Vivo Model
Objective: To evaluate the effect of an autologous flexor digitorum lateralis (FDL) graft to augment a three-loop pulley (3LP) core repair in a canine cadaveric gastrocnemius tendon (GT) laceration model.
Study design: Ex vivo, biomechanical study.
Sample population: Twenty-six canine cadaveric hind limbs.
Modified cranial closing wedge osteotomy to treat cranial cruciate ligament deficient stifles with excessive tibial plateau angles
Objective: To report midterm to long-term outcomes of dogs with cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) rupture and excessive tibial plateau angles (TPA) treated with a modified cranial closing wedge osteotomy (m-CCWO).
Study design: Retrospective case series.
Study population: Dogs (n = 21) with CCL rupture and excessive TPA treated with m-CCWO (n = 28).
