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.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the influence of prophylactic administration of oral antimicrobial medications after tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) on surgical site infections (SSI) and antimicrobial

OBJECTIVE: To determine a relationship between morphometric measurements (MM) and meniscal dimensions (MD) in the dog.

STUDY DESIGN: Cadaveric study.

ANIMALS: Eighteen mixed-breed canine cadavers (22.35 ± 4.06 kg); 36 each of medial and lateral menisci.

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.

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to compare outcomes between the tibial plateau levelling osteotomy (TPLO) procedure and a modified tibial tuberosity advancement (TTA Rapid) in dogs with cranial cruciate ligament rupture.

Authors: Gleason HE, Hudson CC, Cerroni B.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the predictive value of meniscal click for specific meniscal tear morphology.

STUDY DESIGN: Prospective cohort.

ANIMALS: Client-owned dogs (104) with cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) deficiency treated with stifle arthroscopy (111).

Authors: Rossanese M, German AJ, Comerford E, Pettitt R, Tomlinson A, de Vicente F.

OBJECTIVE: The main aim of this study was to describe complications in dogs weighing < 20 kg treated for medial patellar luxation and to determine risk factors associated with these complications.

OBJECTIVE: To determine polarization of synovial macrophages during development of cruciate ligament rupture (CR) and determine whether differences in synovial macrophage polarization in CR, osteoarthritis (OA), and healthy joints exist.

STUDY DESIGN: Prospective case-controlled study.

ANIMALS: Client-owned dogs with unstable stifles with CR (n = 22), paired stable contralateral stifles with partial CR (pCR; n = 7), joints with OA not related to CR (n = 6), and clinically normal (Normal; n = 7) joints.

OBJECTIVE: To report the use and long-term outcome of dogs with surgical site infection (SSI) after tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPO), treated with an amikacin-infused collagen sponge and implant removal.

Authors: Ferrell CL, Barnhart MD, Herman E

OBJECTIVE: To report infection rate, implant removal rate, and postoperative antibiotic therapy after tibial tuberosity advancement (TTA) in dogs.

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective study.

ANIMALS: One thousand seven hundred sixty-eight stifles in 1,732 dogs.
