The use of 3 short LCP should be considered as a strategy to facilitate pancarpal or partial carpal arthrodesis
Descriptions of arthroscopic anatomy and accessibility provide important information for surgical intervention.
The study provides only a static evaluation of a dynamic situation. In a clinical context, it might be useful to focus on the angulation and length of the pastern to evaluate the individual load affecting the DMPJ and its associated structures.
Skyline radiographs using a flatter angle of incidence improve radiographic detection and characterization of flexor cortical lysis severity, may allow the beam to be tangential to the more distal portion of the navicular bone, and are recommended when flexor cortical lysis is suspected.
The successful, direct, differentiation of equine iPSCs into osteoblasts may provide a source of cells for future regenerative medicine strategies to improve fracture repair in horses undergoing surgery.
Further long-term investigations on specific BCP efficacy in horses with osteoarthritis, preferably in blinded and placebo-controlled studies, should be performed to confirm these first positive results.
Septic arthritis was more likely in the presence of surgical site infection and younger age
This combination of techniques facilitated the evaluation and surgical planning of a complex limb deformity
Subchondral bone pathology occurs with a high prevalence in Thoroughbred racehorses
