OBJECTIVE To evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of low-field magnetic resonance imaging (lfMRI) for detection of meniscal tears in the canine stifle. STUDY DESIGN Double-blinded prospective clinical study. ANIMALS Forty-two consecutive stifles of dogs (>or=20 kg; n=34) with clinical and radiologic signs suspicious for cranial cruciate ligament(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the Leipzig Stifle Distractor (LSD) for arthroscopic evaluation of the medial meniscus. STUDY DESIGN Prospective clinical multi-center study. ANIMALS 64 stifles of 64 dogs (mean body weight 35 kg) with suspected cranial cruciate ligament rupture. METHODS The LSD was used to distract the medial compartment and to evaluate the(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the radiographic location of the center of the femoral footprint of the cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) in dogs. MATERIAL AND METHODS Using femora from 49 adult, orthopedically sound dogs (bodyweight≥20 kg), a radiopaque marker was placed on the cranial border of the femoral footprint of the CrCL. Computed tomography and(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the sensitivity and specificity of arthroscopic estimation of positive and negative radio-ulnar incongruence (RUI) in the canine elbow joint. METHODS Experimental radial shortening and lengthening by 1 and 2 mm increments were performed in nine right elbow joints, extending an established surgical in vitro model of RUI.(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop and test an arthroscopic aiming device for extra- to intraarticular tibial tunnel drilling emerging at the center of the tibial insertion (CenterTib) of the cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) in medium to large breed dogs. STUDY DESIGN Descriptive experimental study. SAMPLE POPULATION Fifty-two cadaveric hind limbs of dogs >or=20 kg(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe an extra-articular joint distractor for meniscal examination and treatment during canine stifle arthroscopy. STUDY DESIGN Case series. ANIMALS Dogs >or=20 kg with suspected cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) deficiency. METHODS A custom designed linear side bar was constructed to allow invasive pin distraction of the stifle joint.(More)
OBJECTIVE Investigation of the radiographic cranio-caudal (cc) and medio-lateral (ml) location of the tibial centroid of the attachment area of the CCL (ACCL). MATERIAL AND METHODS In 46 tibiae from orthopedically healthy dogs (22-50kg) the tibial plateau was stripped of all soft tissue, degreased with acetone and the contour of the ACCL was marked with(More)
A 3-year-old Labrador Retriever originating from Spain was presented with a left-sided hind limb lameness for several months. The orthopedic examination revealed a pain response when palpating the left tarsal joint. Radiographic and computed tomographic studies showed polyostotic, aggressive osteolytic bone lesions with mild erosive arthritis. The diagnosis(More)
OBJECTIVE To define the radiographic origin and insertion of the canine medial glenohumeral ligament (MGHL) at the scapula and the humerus of dogs as radiographic aim points for the surgical ligament reconstruction. MATERIAL AND METHODS The forelimbs (n = 20) from 10 adult, orthopaedically unaffected dogs (> 20 kg body weight) were used. Radiopaque(More)
