OBJECTIVE: To investigate the short-term effects of infrapatellar fat pad (IFP) resection in normal dogs.

STUDY DESIGN: Experimental in vivo study.

Category: Knee

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the conformation of the proximal tibia in small breed dogs with and without cranial cruciate ligament disease (CCLD) and to identify morphologic abnormalities that may predispose to development of CCLD.

OBJECTIVES: To compare complication rates and outcomes between cases of concomitant cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) disease and medial patellar luxation (MPL) treated using extracapsular stabilization and tibial tuberosity transposition (ECS+TTT) and tibial tuberosity transposition and advancement (TTTA).

OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to describe the differences in pelvic limb alignment between healthy purebred English Bulldogs and those with medial patellar luxation through the measurement of femoral and tibial angles on computed tomography images in multiplanar reconstruction modality (MPR-CT).

AIMS: To compare the prevalence of minor incisional complications in canine patients undergoing tibial plateau levelling osteotomy (TPLO) surgery that had a hydrogel liquid bandage (HLB) applied to their incision, with patients that had a light adhesive bandage applied.

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether femoral osteotomies that change frontal plane alignment without affecting torsion influence anteversion and inclination.

OBJECTIVE: To compare the accuracy of ultrasonography and MRI for diagnosing medial meniscal lesions in dogs with cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) deficiency.

DESIGN: Diagnostic test evaluation.

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to investigate whether platelet-rich plasma (PRP) enhances osseous healing in conjunction with a high tibial osteotomy in dogs.

STUDY DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial.

OBJECTIVE: To report a method of evaluating 3-dimensional joint motion in dogs with a stifle orthosis.

STUDY DESIGN: Experimental.

BACKGROUND: Patella alta and patella baja are important conditions underlying a predisposition to many joint diseases, including patellar luxation and patellar chondromalacia of the articular cartilage. The frequencies of patella alta and patella baja have not yet been determined. The objectives of this study were to determine the frequency of patella alta and to determine reference values to the position of the vertical patella according to two modified techniques of the Insall-Salvati method in a group of 65 German shepherd dogs (115 stifle joints).
