BACKGROUND The purposes of the study were to determine the relevance and validity of in vivo non-invasive radiographic assessment of the CCLT (Cranial Cruciate Ligament Transection) rabbit model of osteoarthritis (OA) and to estimate the pertinence, reliability and reproducibility of a radiographic OA (ROA) grading scale and associated radiographic atlas.(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of ultrasonographic diagnosis of lesions in the canine stifle associated with cranial cruciate ligament rupture. Thirteen dogs that had a diagnosis of cranial cruciate ligament rupture were included in this prospective clinical study. Two ultrasonographers who were unaware of specific historical and(More)
OBJECTIVES To develop a protocol for rabbit knee joint ultrasonography (US); to grade ultrasonographically the meniscal injuries of the anterior cruciate ligament transection (ACLT) rabbit model of osteoarthritis (OA); to assess with US the effectiveness of the ACLT; to compare final US with macroscopy for the evaluation of medial and lateral meniscal(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the successful use of recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) in the treatment of an antebrachial non-union, secondary to gunshot fracture, stabilized with circular external fixation in a cat. PROCEDURE Following a diagnosis of a highly comminuted gunshot fracture of the distal right radius and ulna, the fracture was(More)
A five-month-old, male, 16 kg, mixed breed dog was presented for an acute non-weight bearing lameness of the right hind limb. A subtotal avulsion of the quadriceps tendon at its patellar insertion was diagnosed through radiography and ultrasonography. Two nylon sutures secured with a stainless steel crimp were placed in a locking loop pattern in the(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate the type of chemical restraint used by French practitioners to perform official hip screening radiographs, to determine the proportion of dogs under general anesthesia versus dogs under sedation, and to search for a difference in hip dysplasia (HD) prevalence between the two groups. From September 2005 to(More)
In order to look for phenotypic correlation between hip (HD) and elbow (ED) dysplasia, we used radiographic scoring obtained from 1,411 dogs of different breeds, which were evaluated for authoritative grading of both conditions. In this population, we found that the risk ratio for an animal to be simultaneously affected by HD and ED is 1.67. For a dog with(More)
Appositional incremental acetabuloplasty using a self growing iliac crest graft pedicle on its epipyseal vessels was performed in 54 puppies 3 months old. Remodeling an adaptation to the shape of the acetabulum is excellent in most of the cases, issuing into a spherical composite cavity. Persistance of a hyaline cartilage is noted until the end of the first(More)
