The osteochondral unit was restored both at the level of the cartilaginous layer and the subchondral bone.
Biologics added to SCP treatment may further enhance its beneficial effects by improving range-of-motion, pain severity, and limb loading through 1 year after treatment.
This translational study supports the continuing use of dGEMRIC as a biomarker for prearthritic cartilage degeneration.
In response to localized degradative enzyme activity, the meniscus increases the release of pro-inflammatory and degradative biomarkers in a dose-dependent manner.
Hock to stifle length may be considered by tissue banks and veterinary surgeons as a quick and cost effective screening tool for appropriate meniscal sizing in dogs.
