Radius/Ulna

Authors: Alan Danielski, Alexander Krekis, Russell Yeadon, Miguel Angel Solano, Tim Parkin, Aldo Vezzoni, Ingo Pfeil

Objective: To report complications and prognostic factors in dogs undergoing proximal abducting ulnar osteotomy (PAUL). To evaluate the ability to predict complications on the basis of post-operative radiographic examination.

Study design: Retrospective cohort study.

Animals: Sixty-six dogs.

Authors: Fiona J Coghill, Louisa K Ho-Eckart, Wendy I Baltzer

Objective: The aim of this study was to determine owner-assessed mid- to long-term outcome for dogs with medial compartment disease treated arthroscopically with fragment removal with or without proximal abducting ulnar osteotomy (PAUL).

Study design: This was a retrospective clinical study.

Objective: To determine whether microwave ablation (MWA) modifies the biomechanical properties of the normal distal radius in the dog to better estimate the clinical impact of MWA as a tool for the treatment of neoplastic bone lesions.

Study design: Biomechanical experimental study.

Sample population: Sixteen pairs of dog forelimbs from 16 canine cadavers.

OBJECTIVE: To report the clinical outcomes of miniature- and toy-breed dogs with primary and previously treated distal radial and ulnar fractures (RUF) treated with a free-form multiplanar type II
