Objectives: The aim of this case series was to report arthroscopic findings and to evaluate clinical outcomes of dogs treated with an inverted V-shaped extracapsular stabilisation technique without additional external coaptation for medial shoulder instability.
Objective: To evaluate the use of the Leipzig distractor during canine shoulder arthroscopy.
Study design: Experimental, ex vivo.
Sample population: Paired shoulder joints from 15 large breed canine cadavers.
Objective: The aim of this study was to describe a novel minimally invasive surgical approach for the treatment of shoulder osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) in dogs and to retrospectively review our clinical cases treated with this approach.
OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to report the outcome and complications of surgical stabilization following fracture of the supraglenoid tubercle in dogs.
OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to describe a stress radiography to detect medial glenohumeral ligament rupture and to investigate the repeatability and reproducibility of this test.
OBJECTIVE: To report the outcome of dogs with large, caudocentral, osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) lesions of the humeral head treated with synthetic osteochondral resurfacing (SOR) implants.
STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective case series.
OBJECTIVES: To describe the range of motion and clinical stability of the feline shoulder following experimental injury and repair using a prosthetic suture technique.
OBJECTIVE: To describe a minimally invasive surgical technique for the treatment of comminuted humeral bicondylar (also known as T-Y) fractures in dogs and report outcome in 3 cases.
OBJECTIVE: This study evaluated the proficiency in executing closed, fluoroscopic-assisted reduction of unicondylar humeral fractures. The following were hypothesised: experienced surgeons would be highly successful in performing closed reduction; body weight, time to surgery and surgeon experience would influence the reduction method; and the reduction method would not affect technical aspects of the repair.
CASE DESCRIPTION: An 8-month-old American Bulldog was presented for assessment of bilateral thoracic limb lameness. Computed tomographic imaging revealed large, deep osteochondritis dissecans lesions in both humeral heads.
