Luxation/Subluxation

Authors: Shinji Yasukawa, Kazuya Edamura, Koji Tanegashima, Mamiko Seki, Kazushi Asano, Tomohiro Nakayama, Kei Hayashi

Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the bone deformities of the distal femur of Toy Poodles with medial patellar luxation (MPL) using computed tomography.

Authors: Jorge Espinel Rupérez et al.

Objective: To report overall rate and type of complications and outcomes of cats with coxofemoral luxation managed with hip toggle stabilization (HTS), to compare rate of postoperative complications and outcomes of cats treated with ultrahigh-molecular-weight-polyethylene (UHMWPE) or nylon, and to identify risk factors for reluxation and non-excellent outcomes.

Study design: Multi-institutional retrospective cohort study.

Despite being one of the most commonly diagnosed causes of canine hind limb lameness, the pathogenesis of medial patellar luxation remains incompletely understood. Most cases are considered developmental with anatomical deformities leading to failure of the stifle extensor mechanism. These include coxa vara, coxa valga, reduced anteversion angle, distal external femoral torsion, excessive distal femoral varus, internal proximal tibial torsion, proximal tibial valgus, tibial tuberosity medialisation, patella alta and shallow trochlear groove.

Case description: A 7.5-year-old 37.8-kg (83.2-lb) sexually intact male German Shepherd Dog (dog 1) and a 2.6-year-old 28.2-kg (62.0-lb) sexually intact male Dutch Shepherd (dog 2), both apprehension police dogs, were admitted for evaluation of left and right thoracic limb lameness, respectively.
