Case summary: A 1-year-old spayed female domestic shorthair cat presented for evaluation of a non-weight bearing right pelvic limb lameness after falling from a 4 m height. On orthopedic examination there was substantial swelling and pain on manipulation of the right pes. Radiographs were obtained under sedation, and these revealed dorsoproximal luxations of the third, fourth and fifth metatarsophalangeal joints, and lateral rotation of the second digit.

Coxofemoral Joint Luxation in Dogs Treated with Toggle Rod Stabilization: A Multi-Institutional Retrospective Review with Client Survey
Coxofemoral luxation is the most common type of joint luxation observed clinically in dogs.
This retrospective study determines the complications and outcomes of open reduction and internal fixation of coxofemoral luxations using a toggle rod stabilization in 58 dogs. The purpose of the study was to compare the results with previous studies to ascertain commonalities and differences.
OBJECTIVES: To determine the risk of lameness and the rate of subsequent medial patellar luxation surgery in dogs that present with occult Grade II medial patellar luxation.
Evaluation of prognostic factors for return of urinary and defecatory function in cats with sacrocaudal luxation
OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate outcomes and prognostic factors for cats with sacrocaudal luxation.
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.
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.
Description and outcome of prosthetic ligament placement for stabilization of medial or dorsomedial tarsometatarsal joint luxation in dogs and cats: 16 cases (2004-2017)
OBJECTIVE: To describe prosthetic ligament placement for reduction and stabilization of medial or dorsomedial tarsometatarsal joint luxation in dogs and cats and to report complications and postoperative outcomes for patients that underwent that procedure.
