Introduction: This cadaveric study describes the collateral ligament constraints on the feline tarsocrural joint using stress radiography.
Tendon and Ligament Injuries
Superficial digital flexor tendon luxation repaired with abrasion calcaneoplasty and primary retinaculum repair in dogs
Surgical treatment of a superficial digital flexor tendon luxation is the treatment of choice, since nonsurgical treatment has been shown to be unsuccessful in dogs in which it has been attempted.
The objectives of this study were to report complications and short- to long-term outcomes in dogs with superficial digital flexor tendon luxation treated with abrasion calcaneoplasty, an adjunctive surgical technique, in addition to traditional repair.
Cranial cruciate ligament disease is a common pathological condition in dogs that is often presented in daily clinical practice.
Different risk factors for the development of this condition include breed, sex, age, bodyweight and neuter status, as well as different biological and biomechanical mechanisms. In the literature, special attention has been paid to the role of the tibial plateau angle in damage to the cranial cruciate ligament.
Background: Achilles mechanism rupture is a surgical condition involving primary tenorrhaphy with various described means of surgical augmentation and bolstering.
Aim: To report complications and outcomes with a novel Achilles repair technique in dogs using a superficial digital flexor tendon (SDFT) or deep digital flexor tendon (DDFT) allograft.
Comparison of incidence of medial meniscal injury in small dogs (≤15 kg) and medium-to-large dogs (>15 kg) with naturally occurring CCL disease undergoing TPLO: 580 stifles (2015 to 2019)
Objectives: To investigate whether a difference exists in incidence of medial meniscal tears between small (≤15 kg) and medium-to-large (>15 kg) dogs with naturally occurring cranial cruciate ligament disease.
Loop modification of the traditional three-loop pulley pattern improves the biomechanical properties and resistance to 3-mm gap formation in a canine common calcanean teno-osseous avulsion model
OBJECTIVE To compare the biomechanical properties and gapping characteristics following loop modification of a 3-loop-pulley (3LP) pattern in an ex vivo canine common calcaneal tendon (CCT) avulsion repair model.
SAMPLE 56 skeletally mature hindlimbs from 28 canine cadavers.
Arthroscopic Caudal Cruciate Ligament Damage in Canine Stifles with Cranial Cruciate Ligament Disease
Objective: The aim of this study was to describe the arthroscopic changes to the caudal cruciate ligament (CdCL) in dogs with cranial cruciate ligament disease.
Accuracy of needle arthroscopy for the diagnosis of medial meniscal tears in dogs with cranial cruciate ligament rupture
Objective: To determine the accuracy of needle arthroscopy (NA) for the diagnosis of medial meniscal tears in dogs with cranial cruciate ligament rupture (CCLR).
Study design: Prospective clinical trial.
Animals: Twenty-six client-owned dogs.
Comparison of Two Stifle Exploratory Methods Using Mini-Arthrotomy for Diagnosis of Canine Medial Meniscal Pathology: An Ex Vivo Study
Objective: The main aim of this study was to compare the accuracy of stifle exploratory using either a stifle distractor (SD method) or a combination of Hohmann and Senn retractors (HS method) for diagnosing canine medial meniscal tears in cranial cruciate ligament-deficient stifles.
