Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate factors contributing to the need for non-elective explant following surgical repair of tibial tuberosity avulsion fractures.
Factors Contributing to the Need for Non-Elective Explant following Surgical Repair of Tibial Tuberosity Avulsion Fracture
Surgical and medical management in the treatment of proximal tibial metaphyseal fracture in immature dogs
The purpose of this study was to report approaches to surgical and medical management of proximal tibial metaphyseal fractures (PTMF) and short-term case outcome.
Combined center of rotation of angulation-based leveling osteotomy and tibial tuberosity transposition: An ex vivo mechanical study
Objective: To describe the technique of combined center of rotation of angulation (CORA)-based leveling osteotomy (CBLO) with tibial tuberosity transposition (TTT) and to compare the load to failure between CBLO combined with TTT and CBLO or TTT alone.
Study design: Ex vivo study.
Sample population: Twelve pairs of cadaveric pelvic limbs.
Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of a novel crescent-shaped tibial plateau-leveling osteotomy (TPLO) saw guide (crescent guide) to assist with saw control in novice participants.
Study design: Ex vivo study.
Sample population: Synthetic bones (n = 54) and medium sized dog pelvic limbs (n = 36).
Management of proximal metaphyseal curvilinear tibial fractures in 25 skeletally immature dogs (2009 to 2020)
Objectives: To describe the occurrence, management and outcome of proximal metaphyseal curvilinear tibial fractures in skeletally immature dogs.
Numerous animal and human studies have demonstrated the benefit of controlled interfragmentary motion on fracture healing. In this study, we quantified interfragmentary motion and load transfer in tibial fractures fixed using a novel intramedullary nail (IMN) that allows controlled axial motion.
Objective: The aim of this study was to report the clinical experience with fluoroscopically guided tibial apophyseal percutaneous pinning (TAPP) for tibial tuberosity avulsion fractures (TTAF).
Study design: This is a retrospective case series.
A three‐dimensional computed tomographic volume rendering methodology to measure the tibial torsion angle in dogs
Objective: To describe a three-dimensional (3D) computed tomographic (CT) methodology to measure the tibial torsion angle (TTa) and to evaluate intrarater and interrater agreements and accuracy through comparison with anatomic measurements.
Study design: Ex vivo cadaveric study.
Sample population: Thirty-six tibiae from 18 dogs.
A 9-year-old spayed female Cane Corso dog was presented with a 1-week history of an acute right hind limb non-weight-bearing lameness. Six years previously, a right tibial tuberosity advancement (TTA) procedure had been performed.
Orthogonal radiographs of the right pelvic limb taken before presentation revealed a comminuted displaced mid-diaphyseal tibial fracture. An aggressive bone lesion with osteolysis and periosteal reaction of the proximal tibia were evident that were most consistent with a primary bone tumor.
Biomechanical Comparison of Two Locking Plate Constructs for the Stabilization of Feline Tibial Fractures
Objectives The aim of this study was to compare the biomechanical characteristics of locking compression plate (LCP) and conical coupling plate (CCP) constructs for the stabilization of experimentally induced gap fractures in cat tibiae.
