Objectives: The ventrodorsal hip extended standard view is conventionally used for radiographic screening of canine hip dysplasia. However, because the ventrodorsal hip extended standard view minimises hip joint laxity, several alternative views have been proposed. Our aim was to evaluate a new ventrodorsal hip flexed and not distracted view to assess joint laxity, by comparing it with the ventrodorsal hip extended standard and ventrodorsal hip flexed and distracted views.
Accuracy of Patient-Specific 3D Printed Drill Guides in the Placement of a Canine Coxofemoral Toggle Pin through a Minimally Invasive Approach
Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of patient-specific three-dimensional printed drill guides (3D-PDG) for the placement of a coxofemoral toggle via a minimally invasive approach.
Analysis of a Laxity Index Database and Comparison with the Fédération Cynologique Internationale Grades of This Population
Objective: This study aimed to analyse the distribution of the laxity indices (LI) in a dog population, to compare the LI with the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) grades and to search for differences of LI between breeds.
Total hip replacement in dogs with contralateral pelvic limb amputation: A retrospective evaluation of 13 cases
Objective: To report the clinical characteristics, surgical management, and medium-term outcomes of total hip replacement (THR) performed in dogs with previous contralateral pelvic limb amputation.
Animals: Thirteen client-owned dogs.
Study design: Multi-institutional retrospective clinical study.
Measurement of Acetabular Component Position in Total Hip Arthroplasty in Dogs: Comparison of a Radio-Opaque Cup Position Assessment Device Using Fluoroscopy with CT Assessment and Direct Measurement
Objectives: The aim of this study was to compare measurements of angle of lateral opening (ALO) and version determined using a radioopaque cup position assessment device imaged with fluoroscopy to measurements obtained by CT and direct measurement in a cadaveric model. Our null hypothesis was that there would not be any difference in the angles measured by the techniques.
Risk factors for reluxation after toggle rod stabilization for treatment of coxofemoral luxation in 128 dogs
Objective: Evaluate the risk factors for reluxation and outcomes for dogs with a toggle rod construct.
Study design: Retrospective case series.
Animals: One hundred twenty-eight client-owned dogs.
Effectiveness of PennHIP and Orthopedic Foundation for Animals measurements of hip joint quality for breeding selection to reduce hip dysplasia in a population of purpose-bred detection dogs
Objective: To examine the effectiveness of applying selective pressure to improve hip joint quality in purpose-bred detection dogs by use of PennHIP distraction index (DI) values along with Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) hip joint scores and to determine whether age, sex, coat color, breed, and body weight were associated with hip joint quality.
Animals: 615 purpose-bred detection dogs assessed for hip joint quality.
Prevalence of Canine Hip Dysplasia in 10 Breeds in France, a Retrospective Study of the 1997-2017 Radiographic Screening Period
Canine hip dysplasia (HD) is a complex developmental disease of the coxo-femoral joint and is one of the most common orthopedic conditions in dogs.
Long-term Outcome and Progression of Osteoarthritis in Uncomplicated Cases of Cranial Cruciate Ligament Rupture Treated by TPLO in Dogs
The object of this study is to evaluate the long-term outcome of hind limb weight-bearing function and progression of stifle osteoarthritis (OA) after tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO).
Groups were classified by the degree of cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) damage and presence or absence of medial meniscus damage as macroscopically evaluated during surgery. Weight-bearing function was assessed via the peak vertical force (PVF), and OA progression was assessed via the radiographic OA score (OAS) preoperatively and 1, 3, 6, 12, 18, 24, and 36 months postoperatively.
Treatment Outcomes for Periprosthetic Femoral Fractures in Cementless Press-Fit Total Hip Replacement
Objective: The aim of this study was to report outcomes in dogs with periprosthetic femoral fractures associated with a press-fit cementless femoral total hip replacement implant.
