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)
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)
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 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)
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 the development of a measurement method for quantifying ulnar subtrochlear sclerosis (STS) in Labrador Retrievers. STUDY DESIGN Prospective blinded study. SAMPLE POPULATION Radiographs of Labrador Retrievers elbows (n=30) with minimal radiographic signs of periarticular osteophytosis. METHOD Measurement of STS as a % of the(More)

OBJECTIVE To determine medium-term clinical efficacy of sliding humeral osteotomy (SHO) for treatment of lameness and elbow pain associated with clinically diagnosed elbow disease featuring cartilage eburnation of the medial elbow compartment (medial compartment disease--MCD). STUDY DESIGN Case series. ANIMALS Dogs (n=49) with severe or persistent(More)
Linear-circular hybrid fixators were used to stabilize humeral and femoral fractures in 21 dogs and five cats. Twenty-two of 24 fractures with sufficient follow-up radiographic evaluation obtained union. Time to radiographic union ranged from 25 to 280 days (mean +/- standard deviation [SD] 110+/-69 days; median 98 days). Eleven animals developed minor and(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)
