OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess computed tomography (CT) images of cadaveric feline stifles and record the relationship between the patella and femoral trochlea in normal stifles; then to investigate the effect of block recession trochleoplasty (BRT) with and without partial parasagittal patellectomy (PPP) on patellofemoral contact, depth of patellar
Computed Tomographic Assessment of Block Recession Trochleoplasty and Partial Parasagittal Patellectomy in Cats
OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to explore the trigonometric principles of the spherical osteotomy, establish guidelines for its application and test the guidelines on bone models using a new blade design.
Femorotibial kinematics in dogs treated with TPLO for cranial cruciate ligament insufficiency: An in vivo fluoroscopic analysis during walking
OBJECTIVE: To determine the ability of tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) to address abnormal femorotibial kinematics caused by cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) rupture during walking in dogs.
STUDY DESIGN: Prospective, clinical.
Use of a Modified TPLO with Double Cut and Medial Crescentic Closing Wedge Osteotomy to Treat Dogs with Cranial Cruciate Ligament Rupture and Tibial Valgus Deformity
OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to report efficacy of a modified tibial plateau levelling osteotomy (TPLO) with double cut and medial crescentic closing wedge osteotomy (TPLO/MCCWO) to treat
Influence of wire configuration on resistance to fragment distraction of tension bands placed in a greater trochanteric osteotomy model
OBJECTIVE: To determine the influence of wiring configurations on initial tension and resistance to tensile loads in tension band constructs without the contributions of Kirschner-wire stabilization.
STUDY DESIGN: Experimental study.
A Retrospective Study Using the String of Pearls TPLO Locking Plate for the Treatment of Cranial Cruciate Ligament Disease
OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to describe the use of String of Pearls (SOP) tibial plateau levelling osteotomy (TPLO) locking plates for the treatment of cranial cruciate ligament disease
Modified Triple Tibial Osteotomy for Combined Cranial Cruciate Ligament Rupture, Tibial Deformities, or Patellar Luxation
Proximal tibial deformities or patellar luxation may occur concurrently with cranial cruciate ligament rupture.
The objective of this study was to describe the management of those conditions with a modified triple tibial osteotomy (TTO) in nine dogs. Medical records of dogs who underwent a modified TTO were reviewed.
Iliectomy with limb preservation for a dog with ilial osteosarcoma: Surgical description and case report
OBJECTIVE: To report the surgical technique for iliectomy and outcome in a single clinical case.
STUDY DESIGN: Case report.
ANIMAL: A 10-year-old female spayed Rottweiler.
OBJECTIVE: To determine the influence of postoperative extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) on hind limb use after tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO).
STUDY DESIGN: Randomized, prospective clinical trial.
OBJECTIVE: To quantitatively evaluate patellofemoral (PF) kinematics during walking in dogs with cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) deficiency treated by tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO).
STUDY DESIGN: Longitudinal observational study.
