OBJECTIVE To compare the long-term outcome of tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) and extracapsular repair (ECR) for treatment of a ruptured cranial cruciate ligament (RCCL). STUDY DESIGN Prospective clinical trial. ANIMALS Normal adult dogs (control, n = 79); dogs with unilateral CCL disease (n = 38). METHODS Dogs had TPLO (n = 15) or ECR (n =(More)
CONTEXT During the pubertal transition, LH secretion initially increases only during sleep; however, its relationship to sleep stage is unknown. OBJECTIVES Our objective was to determine whether the initiation of LH pulses is related to a specific sleep stage in pubertal children. DESIGN AND SETTING Frequent blood sampling and polysomnographic studies(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine if currently used ground reaction force (GRF) normalization methods are accurate and precise enough to be used on a single-limb basis. STUDY DESIGN Prospective clinical trial. ANIMALS Clinically normal (n = 69) dogs and 40 dogs with unilateral ruptured cranial cruciate ligaments (CCL). METHODS Pelvic limb GRFs of orthopedically(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine a long term function of tibial tuberosity advancement (TTA) for treatment of ruptured cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) in dogs, and to compare this to the long term function of previously reported tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO), extracapsular reconstruction (ECR), and a population of normal dogs.
