Objective: The aim of the study was to determine the changes in biomechanical characteristics following tibial plateau levelling osteotomy (TPLO) using simulated manual tests.
Biomechanical Effects of Tibial Plateau Levelling Osteotomy on Joint Instability in Normal Canine Stifles: An In Vitro Study
Unicompartmental Bipolar Osteochondral and Meniscal Allograft Transplantation is Effective for Treatment of Medial Compartment Gonarthrosis in a Canine Model
Osteochondral allograft (OCA) transplantation can functionally restore large articular defects in the knee. Bipolar OCA transplantations for partial and whole joint resurfacing often have less favorable results than single-surface transplants.
A New Approach to Treatment Selection in Dogs With Cruciate Ligament Rupture: Patient-Specific Treatment Recommendations
Cranial cruciate ligament rupture is one of the most important diseases in canine orthopedics. Despite the frequent occurrence of the disease and the extensive literature available, there is still controversy about the best treatment method.
Disease-related and Overall Survival in Dogs With Cranial Cruciate Ligament Disease, a Historical Cohort Study
Objective: To analyse the effect of treatment method and other risk factors on survival in dogs with cranial cruciate ligament disease (CCLD).
Contributing factors to surgical site infection after tibial plateau leveling osteotomy: A follow‐up retrospective study
Objective: To identify factors associated with surgical site infection (SSI) after tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO).
Study design: Retrospective case series.
Animals: Dogs (n = 541) that underwent TPLO (n = 659).
Transection of the Medial Meniscus Anterior Horn Results in Cartilage Degeneration and Meniscus Remodeling in a Large Animal Model
The meniscus plays a central load bearing role in the knee joint. Unfortunately, meniscus injury is common and can lead to joint degeneration and osteoarthritis. In small animal models, progressive degenerative changes occur with unloading of the meniscus via destabilization of the medial meniscus (DMM).
Modelling the Effects of Cranial Cruciate Ligament Transection, Medial Meniscal Release and Triple Tibial Osteotomy on Stability of the Canine Stifle Joint
OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the ex vivo effects of sequential cranial cruciate ligament transection (CCLx), medial meniscal release (MMR) and triple tibial osteotomy (TTO) on canine
Ex vivo mechanical properties of a 2.5‐mm bone anchor for treatment of cranial cruciate ligament rupture in toy breed dogs
OBJECTIVE: To determine the mechanical pull-out properties of a 2.5-mm bone anchor implanted in ex vivo femurs of toy breed dogs and to determine whether there is a difference between knotted and knotless configurations.
Computed Tomographic Assessment of Block Recession Trochleoplasty and Partial Parasagittal Patellectomy in Cats
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
Average Tibial Plateau Angle of 3,922 Stifles Undergoing Surgical Stabilization for Cranial Cruciate Ligament Rupture
OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to report the average tibial plateau angle (TPA) from a large sample of dogs and to determine if breed or gonadectomy had a significant association with abnormal TPA.
DESIGN: This was a retrospective case study.
