OBJECTIVE To compare locking screws with conventional screws inserted in the tibial plateau fragment for reduction and stability of the construct after tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO), using a locking TPLO plate. STUDY DESIGN Experimental biomechanical study. ANIMALS Cadaveric canine pelvic limbs (n=8 pairs). METHODS TPLO was stabilized with(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare tibial plateau rotation after tibial plateau leveling osteotomy with the radiographically planned rotation and to determine the effect of translations and rotations of the tibial plateau fragment on the biomechanical stability of the construct under cyclic loading.
