OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the repeatability and reproducibility of the radiographical stress technique using the Vezzoni-modified Badertscher distension device (VMBDD).
OBJECTIVE: To report the outcome of dogs treated with triple pelvic osteotomy (TPO) for dorsal luxation after total hip replacement (THR).
STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective clinical case series.
ANIMALS: Seventeen client-owned animals.
OBJECTIVE: To report the clinical application of a hemipelvic and proximal femoral endoprosthesis for limb salvage.
STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective case report.
ANIMAL: One 5-year-old, neutered female, flat coated retriever with a malignant neoplasia of the left coxofemoral joint.
OBJECTIVE: To describe a minimally invasive toggle repair technique under arthroscopic guidance to correct a coxofemoral luxation in a canine.
STUDY DESIGN: Case report ANIMALS: A 9-year-old, male (neutered) Alaskan husky.
Orthopaedic diseases are common in the pelvic limbs of dogs, and reference values for large muscle groups of the pelvic limb may aid in diagnosis such diseases. As such, the objective of this study was to compare the large muscle groups of the pelvic limb in seven breeds of dogs.
Femoral head and neck ostectomy (FHNO) is a salvage surgical procedure intended to eliminate hip joint laxity associated pain in the immature dog, or pain due to secondary osteoarthritis in the mature dog. The outcome of the procedure is associated with the size of the dog but the cause of a generally poorer outcome in larger breeds has not been determined.
Canine hip dysplasia, a debilitating orthopedic disorder that leads to osteoarthritis and cartilage degeneration, is common in several large-sized dog breeds and shows moderate heritability suggesting that selection can reduce prevalence. Estimating genomic breeding values require large reference populations, which are expensive to genotype for development of genomic prediction tools.
OBJECTIVE: This article aims to report the medium-term clinical outcome and assess persistence of enlargement of the lumbosacral lateral intervertebral neurovascular foramen using computed tomography (CT) volumetric analysis in dogs following lateral foraminotomy.
OBJECTIVE: This article aims to describe the use of a single transsacral screw and nut in a cohort of cats with bilateral sacroiliac (SI) luxation and document its radiographic and clinical outcome.
METHODS: Medical records and radiographic studies of cats with bilateral SI luxation managed with a transsacral screw and nut stabilization were reviewed. Short-term follow-up included clinical examination and radiographs. Long-term follow-up was via owner questionnaire.
OBJECTIVE: The aim of this article was to compare the force required to maintain the acetabular ventroversion after double pelvic osteotomy (DPO) and modified triple pelvic osteotomy (2.5PO).
METHODS: Unilateral DPO (group A) and unilateral modified DPO (group B = 2.5PO) were performed on cadaveric canine pelves (n = 10/group). The twisting moment required to maintain fragment position for DPO and 2.5DPO was compared.
