Injury or loss of the meniscus generally leads to degenerative osteoarthritic changes in the knee joint. However, few surgical options exist for meniscal replacement. The goal of this study was to examine the ability of a non-degradable, anatomically shaped artificial meniscal implant, composed of Kevlar®-reinforced polycarbonate-urethane (PCU), to prevent(More)
The objective of this study was to examine whether different mechanical modifications and/or impregnation of hyaluronic acid (HA) might enhance aragonite-based scaffold properties for the regeneration of cartilage and bone in an animal model. Bi-phasic osteochondral scaffolds were prepared using coralline aragonite with different modifications, including 1-(More)
BACKGROUND The regeneration of articular hyaline cartilage remains an elusive goal despite years of research. Recently, an aragonite-hyaluronate (Ar-HA) biphasic scaffold has been described capable of cartilage regeneration over a 6-month follow-up period. This study was conducted in order to assess the fate of the regenerated osteochondral tissue in a(More)
In this case report, we describe the use of a cylindrical titanium mesh cage combined with cancellous bone graft to surgically manage large segmental bone defects in a dog. A seven-year-old, neutered male cross-breed dog, with highly comminuted fractures of the right femur and the left radius and ulna, was referred for treatment. Previous open reduction and(More)
Medial patellar luxation is defined as medial displacement of the patella from the trochlear groove. In dogs, medial luxations account for 75% of all patellar luxation cases, and are frequently associated with patella alta. Common surgical treatments for medial luxation are trochleoplasty and lateral transposition of the crest to drive the patella into the(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the use of tibial plateau levelling osteotomy and lateral fabellotibial suture in combination for treatment of severe internal tibial rotational stifle instability in cranial cruciate-deficient stifles. METHODS Twenty-three stifles in 19 dogs were diagnosed with cranial cruciate ligament rupture with severe stifle instability,(More)
