OBJECTIVE: To describe and report outcomes after lateral translation of the manus for limb-sparing management of distal radial osteosarcoma in dogs.

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective case series.

STUDY POPULATION: Eighteen client-owned dogs.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the influence of surgical site infection (SSI) on the median disease-free interval (DFI) and median survival time (MST) in dogs after amputation in the curative-intent treatment of appendicular osteosarcoma (OSA).

OBJECTIVE: To report the clinical application of a hemipelvic and proximal femoral endoprosthesis for limb salvage.

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective case report.

ANIMAL: One 5-year-old, neutered female, flat coated retriever with a malignant neoplasia of the left coxofemoral joint.

Category: Hip - Oncology

OBJECTIVE: To report modification of the endoprosthesis surgical limb-salvage technique to treat a locally extensive osteosarcoma in a dog and associated functional outcome.

STUDY DESIGN: Clinical case report.

ANIMALS: One client-owned dog.

Objective: To report modification of the endoprosthesis surgical limb‐salvage technique to treat a locally extensive osteosarcoma in a dog and associated functional outcome.

Study design: Clinical case report.

Animals: One client‐owned dog.

OBJECTIVE: To report modification of the endoprosthesis surgical limb-salvage technique to treat a locally extensive osteosarcoma in a dog and associated functional outcome.

STUDY DESIGN: Clinical case report.

ANIMALS: One client-owned dog.

OBJECTIVE: To critically evaluate whether open fracture fixation is a significant risk factor for latent osteosarcoma development.

STUDY DESIGN: Case-control study.

SAMPLE POPULATION: Dogs undergoing open fracture repair and dogs diagnosed with osteosarcoma.

OBJECTIVE: To describe the surgical technique for ischiectomy in the dog and to report the procedure in a case.

STUDY DESIGN: Case report.

ANIMAL: An 11-year-old spayed female mixed breed dog with chondrosarcoma of the ischium.

METHODS: The dog presented for hindlimb lameness and evaluation after a radiographic finding of a lytic lesion confined to the left ischium. Following staging and confirmation of stage 1 disease, an ischiectomy with preservation of the hindlimb was performed.

Category: Hip - Oncology

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate outcomes of dogs and owner satisfaction and perception of their dogs’ adaptation following amputation of a thoracic or pelvic limb.

DESIGN: Retrospective case series.

ANIMALS: 64 client-owned dogs.

Category: Oncology

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate clinical characteristics, outcome, and prognostic variables in a cohort of dogs surviving > 1 year after an initial diagnosis ofosteosarcoma.

DESIGN: Retrospective case series.

ANIMALS: 90 client-owned dogs.
