Two Domestic Shorthaired cats were diagnosed with longstanding lameness attributed to cranial cruciate ligament deficiency without any history of trauma. One cat had a previous operation in which the lateral nylon suture technique was used, and the other cat was affected by a partial tear of the cranial cruciate ligament. Tibial tuberosity advancement was(More)
In this paper we address the question of representing the discriminant of an imaginary quadratic field with respect to the basis of a cyclotomic field. This representation allows us to parameterize new families of ordinary elliptic curves over finite prime fields suitable for pairing applications. In particular these curves have small discriminants greater(More)
OBJECTIVE To document outcome in 2 dogs and 2 cats after conversion of femoral head and neck excision (FHNE) to total hip replacement (THR). STUDY DESIGN Case series. ANIMALS Dogs (n = 2) and 2 cats. METHODS For 1 dog and 2 cats, THR was performed using cemented acetabular and femoral components. Noncemented acetabular and cemented femoral components(More)
This in vitro study compares the biomechanical properties of two methods of ilial fracture repair in dogs. Ten pelves were harvested from skeletally mature mixed breed dogs weighing 20-27 kg and bilateral oblique ilial body osteotomies were created. One hemipelvis from each dog was stabilized with a 2.7 mm plate and screws and the contralateral hemipelvis(More)
Attempts to produce Zn analogues of the structural model complexes [M2(mu-O2CR)2(O2CR)2(mu-H2O)(tmen)2] (M = Ni, Co, Mn; R = CH(3), C(CH3)3, CF3) by the reaction of a series of zinc carboxylates with N,N,N',N'-tetramethylethylenediamine (tmen), resulted in the mononuclear complexes [Zn(OAc)(2)(tmen)] (1) and [Zn(crot)2(tmen)].(0.5)H2O (2) for R = CH3 and(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate risk factors for complications, including meniscal injury and infection, after tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) in dogs. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective case series. SAMPLE POPULATION Dogs (n=1000; 1146 stifles) with cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) rupture that had TPLO. METHODS Medical records (January 2004-March 2009) were(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine if fatigue microdamage is associated with fragmented medial coronoid process (FMCP). STUDY DESIGN Prospective study. ANIMALS Thirty-eight dogs were admitted for subtotal coronoid ostectomy as treatment for FMCP. Surgical specimens of medial coronoid process (MCP) were retrieved from treated dogs. Normal MCP were collected from 5(More)
OBJECTIVE To report clinical, radiographic, and arthroscopic findings in dogs with thoracic limb lameness attributed solely to disease of the medial aspect of the coronoid process (MCP). STUDY DESIGN Case series. ANIMALS Dogs (n=263) with MCP disease (MCD; 437 elbows). METHODS Clinical records (January 2000-July 2006) and radiographs were reviewed and(More)
Canine osteoarthritis (OA) commonly occurs in association with articular diseases, such as hip dysplasia (HD), elbow dysplasia (ED), or cranial cruciate ligament rupture (CCLR). We hypothesized that a common genomic risk for the development of canine joint disease and canine OA would be identified by evaluating the allele frequencies of candidate gene(More)
