Equine mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) are of particular interest both for basic research and for the therapeutic approach to musculoskeletal diseases in the horse. Their multilineage differentiation potential gives them the capability to contribute to the repair of tendon, ligament and bone damage. MSCs are also considered a promising therapeutic aid in(More)
Ultrasound is a useful technique for the study of normal and pathologic stifle joints, in particular for soft tissue examination. The aim of this study was to evaluate sonography for examination of stifle joints affected by cranial cruciate ligament rupture. Forty-two medium to giant breed dogs were studied. Tibial compression radiography was performed. A(More)
Two new simple models for the arterial tree input impedance are presented. The first is a 4-element windkessel model, obtained by paralleling the characteristic resistance of the 3-element windkessel model (Westerhof, 1968) with an inductance. The second is a tube model with a complex load, which is characterised by four parameters also. The parameters of(More)
The ultrasonographic findings of kidneys, liver and urinary bladder of 288 Persian and 44 Exotic Shorthair clinically normal cats that underwent screening for polycystic kidney disease (PKD) between July 2003 and December 2005 were reviewed. Cats were divided into two groups, one including cats aged <9 months (group 1) and one cats aged >/=9 months (group(More)
The aim of this study was to describe the ultrasonographic features of grass awns in soft tissue. A 10 MHz linear transducer was used. Ultrasound images from 25 dogs (27 awns) were collected and compared with the results from water bath studies using wild oat seeds (Avena spp.) collected in the field. Wild oat seeds were the most common grass awn found in(More)
The aim of this study was to improve the knowledge of the time of appearance of dental germs and their morphological development until birth in bovine fetuses. Skulls and isolated mandibles of 35 Simmenthal bovine fetuses, of both sexes and ages from 97 to 280 days old were examined. The radiographic examination was performed with high definition and(More)
Incomplete humeral condylar fracture was diagnosed by means of radiology, CT, scintigraphy, arthroscopy and bone biopsy in two English Pointer dogs. In both cases an acute thoracic limb lameness, unrelated to a known episode of major trauma, was observed. Incomplete humeral condylar fracture, mainly described in the Spaniel breeds, has been recently(More)
Overstrain tendonitis are common pathologies in the sport horses. Therapeutic approaches to tendon healing do not always result in a satisfactory anatomical and functional repair, and healed tendon is often characterized by functional impairment and high risk of reinjury. Recently, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and platelet rich plasma (PRP) have been(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate distinctive features of pelvis and hip joint development of English Bulldogs throughout the first year of life. METHODS The pelves of 20 English Bulldogs were radiographed at three different ages (<4, 6-8, and 12-14 months). At each time point, the dogs were clinically evaluated and the abnormal hip joints were classified as mild,(More)
INTRODUCTION Gastrointestinal (GI) motility disorders include many clinical manifestations associated with various pathologies. They are widespread and can be considered a primary symptom or can be associated to other diseases, such as Parkinson's disease. Understanding the type and site of GI dysmotility is crucial to identify the functional abnormality(More)
