A seven-month-old male Shetland Sheepdog was presented for assessment of thoracic limb lameness of 3 weeks duration.
Periosteal reaction-like lesions at the cranial aspect of the humeral diaphysis have a high prevalence in older, large breed dogs and may represent entheses of the superficial pectoral muscles
Authors have commonly observed lamellar periosteal new bone formation at the cranial aspect of the humeral diaphysis in mediolateral radiographs of the humerus for large breed dogs with no evidence of pain or lameness.
Objective: To report the configuration, risk factors, fixation methods and complication rates after repair of humeral condylar fractures (HCF) in French bulldogs, and report the presence of humeral intracondylar fissures (HIF) in this population as a possible predisposing factor.
Study design: Retrospective clinical cohort study.
Sample population: Forty-four elbows.
Objectives: The aim of this study was to develop guidelines for the optimal location of drill entry and exit points for insertion of a transcondylar screw across the feline humeral condyle.
Management of Feline Femoral, Tibial and Humeral Fractures Using a 3.5 mm Titanium Interlocking Nail
Objective: Our objectives were to report complications associated with stabilization of long-bone fractures in cats using a 3.5-mm titanium interlocking nail and to examine the influences of signalment, fracture type and fixation evaluations on the occurrence of complications.
Study design: Retrospective clinical study.
Category: Femur - Fracture Fixation and Implants - Humerus - Tibia
Objective: To evaluate long-term clinical outcomes of dogs surgically treated for proximal humeral osteochondrosis (OC).
Study design: Cross-sectional study.
Sample population: Twenty dogs (n = 26 shoulders).
Retrospective evaluation of surgical technique, complications and long-term outcome of lateral and medial humeral condylar fractures in 80 dogs
Category: Elbow - Fracture Fixation and Implants - Humerus
Design and topographic evaluation of a canine humeral anatomic plating system (CHAPS) for humeral condylar fracture repair in spaniels
Objective: To design a precontoured plating system for humeral condylar fracture repair in spaniels with humeral intracondylar fissure (HIF) and quantify accuracy of fit of the system on 3D printed bone models.
Study design: Experimental on 3D printed models.
Objectives: To estimate, using CT imaging, differences in the regional bone density of the humeral condyle in Labrador retriever elbows with and without medial coronoid process disease.
A Prevalence Study of Canine Humeral Condylar Fractures Over a Ten-Year Period at an Academic Teaching Hospital
Objective The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence, breed predisposition and fracture conformation of humeral condylar fractures (HCF) over a 10-year period. Results were compared with published studies emanating from the United Kingdom exploring effect of breed on HCF.
