Osteotomy/Ostectomy

Authors: Alexandra I M Matchwick, Janis P Bridges, Andrew B Scrimgeour, Andrew J Worth

Objective: To report postoperative complications associated with forkless tibial tuberosity advancement (TTA) performed in primary care veterinary practice and to compare results with previous publications.

Study design: Retrospective study.

Sample population: Three hundred seventy-four forkless TTAs in 329 dogs performed by six nonspecialist veterinarians.

Authors: Akash Alexander, Krizia Compagnone et al.

Objective: To determine the influence of follow-up radiographic examination on recommendations made during routine clinical re-evaluation of dogs that had undergone uncomplicated tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO).

Study design: Retrospective multi-institutional case series.

Animals: Client-owned dogs (N = 1010) that underwent uncomplicated TPLO.

Authors: Brittany E Abrams, Vincent A Wavreille, Bianca F Hettlich, Laura E Selmic

Objective: To describe the clinical presentation and outcome of two greyhounds with calcaneal malunions that were treated with corrective osteotomy and partial tarsal arthrodesis.

Study design: Short case series.

Animals: Two adult racing greyhounds.

Authors: Rebecca L Laube, Kyle K Kerstetter

Objective: The aim of this study was to report the prevalence and risk factors of bilateral meniscal tears during a tibial plateau levelling osteotomy (TPLO).

Authors: William Pownall, Ulrich Rytz, Gertraud Schuepbach, Claudia Spadavecchia, Helene Rohrbach

Objective: To evaluate the prevalence of chronic postsurgical pain (CPSP) after tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) in dogs and to determine the influence of preemptive locoregional analgesia on CPSP.

Study design: Retrospective study.

Animals: One hundred twenty client-owned dogs.

Authors: Steven W Frederick, Alan R Cross

Objective: To determine the effect of extracorporeal shock wave (ESWT) on liposomal bupivacaine in a tibial-plateau-leveling osteotomy model.

Study design: In vitro study.

Sample population: Ten samples per group.

Objective: The aim of the study was to determine the changes in biomechanical characteristics following tibial plateau levelling osteotomy (TPLO) using simulated manual tests.

Authors: Luc A A Janssens, Robert Daems, Lorenzo Pillin, Peter Vandekerckhove, Stefan Van Dongen

Objective: To determine whether using 12.5° Slocum-like triple pelvic osteotomy (TPO) plates would create sufficient femoral head coverage and lower the occurrence of overrotation compared with using 20° TPO plates in dogs with hip dysplasia.

Study design: Prospective clinical study.

Sample population: Thirty-five dogs with hip dysplasia (38 hips).

Authors: Ariel N Schlag, Laura E Peycke, Don A Hulse

Objective: To describe outcomes of dogs with excessive tibial plateau angle (eTPA) and cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) disease treated with center of rotation of angulation-based leveling osteotomy (CBLO) and cranial closing wedge ostectomy (CCWO).

Study design: Retrospective study.

Animals: Twenty-one dogs.
