OBJECTIVE: To report the radiographic appearance of a bioabsorbable biocomposite tibial tuberosity advancement cage at least 1 year after implantation. Design Retrospective case series.
Long-term radiographic appearance of a bioabsorbable biocomposite tibial tuberosity advancement cage implant
Modified Triple Tibial Osteotomy for Combined Cranial Cruciate Ligament Rupture, Tibial Deformities, or Patellar Luxation
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.
Influence of administration of antimicrobial medications after TPLO on surgical site infections: A retrospective study of 308 dogs
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
Morphometric measurements to predict meniscal size in skeletally mature dogs for meniscal transplantation
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.
Comparison of Outcomes Associated with TPLO and a Modified Technique for Tibial Tuberosity Advancement for the Treatment of CCLD in Dogs: A Randomized Clinical 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.
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).
Complications Following Surgical Correction of Medial Patellar Luxation in Small-to-Medium-Size Dogs
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.
Use of an amikacin-infused collagen sponge concurrent with implant removal for treatment of tibial plateau leveling osteotomy surgical site infection in 31 cases
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.
