OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of three surgical procedures (left lateral corpectomy [LC], LC plus mini-hemilaminectomy [LC-MH], and LC plus hemilaminectomy [LC-H]) on the biomechanics and intervertebral collapse of a lumbar vertebral motor unit (VMU). METHODS Six canine cadaveric first and second lumbar vertebrae (L1-L2) VMU(More)
Partial portal vein ligation is the experimental model most frequently used to study prehepatic portal hypertension. Different systemic and splanchnic biochemical and histological alterations in short-term (28-45 days) and long-term (12-14 months) evolutive phases which has been described in this experimental model suggest the existence of different(More)
BACKGROUND Long-term extrahepatic cholestasis in the rat induces ductular proliferation and fibrosis in the liver, portal hypertension, splenomegaly, portosystemic collateral circulation, and ascites. These splanchnic alterations could have an inflammatory pathophysiology. MATERIAL AND METHODS We measured serum levels of hepatobiliary injury markers and(More)
Hodgkin's-like lymphoma is a slow growing neoplasm, usually affecting the lymph nodes of the head and neck, which has been sporadically described in veterinary patients. This report describes the clinical and histopathological features in a 9-year-old male neutered Siamese cat that presented with a 6 week history of mid-dorsocranial swelling.(More)
OBJECTIVE To report synovial fluid lactate concentrations in normal and pathological canine joints. STUDY DESIGN Controlled, prospective study. METHODS Lactate was measured in synovial fluid using a hand-held meter and the rest of the fluid was sent to a commercial laboratory for analysis. Samples were divided into four groups; group 1: control, group(More)
A nine-year-old spayed female Cocker Spaniel was investigated for an eight week history of licking and rubbing at the tail base, dullness, and signs of pain on manipulation of the tail. Left-sided intraforaminal compression of the first caudal nerve root due to intervertebral disc disease was diagnosed by radiographic, computed tomography, and magnetic(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the ability to identify the dorsal atlantoaxial ligament during ultrasonographic examination of dogs. STUDY DESIGN Canine cadaveric study. SAMPLE POPULATION Canine cervical spines (n = 35). METHODS Thirty-five canine cadavers with an estimated body weight of 6-35 kg were retrieved. Five cervical spines were dissected to assess(More)
Objectives This study aimed to define a safe corridor for 2.7 mm cortical sacroiliac screw insertion in the dorsal plane (craniocaudal direction) using radiography and CT, and in the transverse plane (dorsoventral direction) using CT in feline cadavers. A further aim was to compare the values obtained by CT with those previously reported by radiography in(More)
