OBJECTIVE: To assess the medium- to long-term radiographically confirmed outcomes in juvenile dogs with hip dysplasia (HD) that did and did not undergo double pelvic osteotomy (DPO).

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective case-controlled.

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

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to explore the trigonometric principles of the spherical osteotomy, establish guidelines for its application and test the guidelines on bone models using a new blade design.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the ability of tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) to address abnormal femorotibial kinematics caused by cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) rupture during walking in dogs.

STUDY DESIGN: Prospective, clinical.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to report efficacy of a modified tibial plateau levelling osteotomy (TPLO) with double cut and medial crescentic closing wedge osteotomy (TPLO/MCCWO) to treat

OBJECTIVE: To determine the influence of wiring configurations on initial tension and resistance to tensile loads in tension band constructs without the contributions of Kirschner-wire stabilization.

STUDY DESIGN: Experimental study.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to describe the use of String of Pearls (SOP) tibial plateau levelling osteotomy (TPLO) locking plates for the treatment of cranial cruciate ligament disease

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.

Authors: Oramas A, Boston SE, Skinner OT.

OBJECTIVE: To report the surgical technique for iliectomy and outcome in a single clinical case.

STUDY DESIGN: Case report.

ANIMAL: A 10-year-old female spayed Rottweiler.

Authors: Barnes K, Faludi A, Takawira C, Aulakh K, Rademacher N, Liu CC1, Lopez MJ.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the influence of postoperative extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) on hind limb use after tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO).

STUDY DESIGN: Randomized, prospective clinical trial.
