OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to investigate mobility performance in dogs suffering from hip osteoarthritis secondary to hip dysplasia using kinesiology.
Kinetic and Kinematic Analysis of Dogs Suffering from Hip Osteoarthritis and Healthy Dogs Across Different Physical Activities
OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to retrospectively evaluate the complications and long-term outcomes of total hip arthroplasty (THA) using a hybrid cementless system.
OBJECTIVE: To determine the incidence and outcomes of total hip replacements with polar gaps in dogs.
STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective case series.
ANIMALS: One hundred fifty-five client-owned dogs.
Protein Biomarkers in Serum and Urine for Determining Presence or Absence of Hip Dysplasia in a Canine Model.
This study compares serum and urine concentrations of relevant protein biomarkers among adult dogs with or without radiographic canine hip dysplasia (CHD). Adult (≥ 2 years of age), client-owned dogs (n = 74) radiographically categorized as having at least "good" hips (n = 49) or having "mild", "moderate", or "severe" hip dysplasia (n = 25) by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA). Urine and serum samples were obtained from each dog at a single time-point and processed and analyzed for relevant protein biomarkers.
BACKGROUND: Hip arthroscopy has become a viable option over the last few years for small animal orthopedic diseases, including hip dysplasia, osteoarthritis, and joint evaluation. However, the narrow joint spaces make it difficult to manipulate the instrument, and depth of tissues make it difficult to distract the joint space. In addition, it is very difficult to maintain consistent distraction over time with a manual distraction due to hand fatigue.
Technical Repeatability and Reproducibility of the Stress Radiographs Performed with the Vezzoni-Modified Badertscher Hip Distension Device
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.
