Objective: To report a surgical technique and outcomes of transiliosacral toggle suture repair to treat feline bilateral sacroiliac luxation/fracture (SILF).

Study design: Retrospective study.

Animals: Fifteen client-owned cats.

Authors: AhRan Kang, Haebeom Lee, Arim Lee, Yoonho Roh, Bokyun Sim, Jaemin Jeong

Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of safe positioning of double 2.3-mm headless cannulated self-compression screws (HCS) in a small dog cadaveric sacroiliac luxation model and to compare the static rotational biomechanical properties of fixation repaired using two different screw systems with a minimally invasive osteosynthesis technique: double 2.3-mm HCS and a single 3.5-mm standard cortical screw placed in a lag fashion.

Objectives: This study aims to report complications and long-term outcomes of combined tibial plateau leveling osteotomy and tibial tuberosity transposition (TPLO-TTT) for treatment of concurrent cranial cruciate ligament rupture and medial patellar luxation (MPL).

Authors: Yukari Nagahiro et al.

Objective: To determine the signalment and musculoskeletal morphology of small-breed dogs affected by medial patellar luxation (MPL) grade IV based on the age of the CT scan.

Animals: 40 small-breed dogs (54 limbs) with MPL grade IV.

Authors: Brittany L Cortina, Alex Terreros, R Mark Daye

Objective: To report a modification of the tibial tuberosity transposition (m-TTT) technique used to treat medial patellar luxation (MPL) in dogs, and report its complications.

Study design: Retrospective case series.

Sample population: Dogs (n = 235) undergoing MPL correction, using m-TTT (n = 300 stifles).

Objectives: The main aim of this study was to report the surgical technique, the complications and the clinical outcomes of the mini-Tight Rope system (mini-TR) for a modified hip toggle stabilization of coxofemoral luxation in cats.

Study design: A multicentre retrospective study.

Animals: Thirty-two client-owned cats.

Authors: Charlie Brincin et al.

Objective: To determine the influence of radiographic examination on the recommendations made at the time of planned re-evaluation of dogs after medial patellar luxation (MPL) surgery.

Study design: Retrospective multi-institutional case series.

Animals: Client-owned dogs (N = 825) that underwent MPL surgery.

Congenital luxation of the ulnar and radius is a rare orthopaedic condition in the dog.

This case report describes a novel surgical treatment for congenital elbow luxation in a medium-breed dog. A 6-week-old Kelpie presented for left forelimb lameness and deformity. Radiographs and computed tomography (CT) confirmed the diagnosis of unilateral ulnar and radius luxation. The surgical repair involved open reduction followed by fixation with an extraarticular pin and a transarticular external fixator.

Objective: The aim of this study was to identify the ideal anchor point for patellar anti-rotational sutures for adjunctive stabilization of medial patellar luxation in both small and large breed dogs.
