OBJECTIVE To determine the usefulness of 5 radiographic projections of the elbow joint for identification of fragmented coronoid process (FCP) and associated secondary degenerative changes in dogs. DESIGN Longitudinal clinical study. ANIMALS 19 dogs suspected of having FCP (7 dogs, 1 elbow joint; 12 dogs, both elbow joints). PROCEDURE 5 radiographic(More)
Authors report a case of a 31 years old patient who eliminate a urinary stone which contains a platinium coil. Five years ago, this patient had a percutaneous nephrolithotomy. A persistent hematuria was successfully managed with angioembolization of a lower polar artery branch. One of the coils was deployed too distally. It was not efficient, it rolled(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the clinical results in dogs with acetabular fractures stabilized using a screw-wire-polymethylmethacrylate (SWP) composite fixation. STUDY DESIGN A retrospective study of client-owned dogs with acetabular fractures. ANIMALS Fourteen dogs ranging in age from 4 to 95 months (mean, 34 +/- 25 months; median, 25 months) and body weight(More)
Prophylactic insulin can prevent diabetes in the BB rat. We evaluated its use to prevent adoptive transfer of diabetes by activated splenocytes. ConA-activated spleen cells from acutely diabetic BB rats were divided into two equal aliquots and injected intravenously in paired diabetes-prone BB rat littermates. At the time of cell injection, subcutaneous(More)

OBJECTIVE To evaluate clinical and histologic effects of surgically created urethral intussusception and determine whether it creates a high-pressure zone that resists passive urine flow in clinically normal dogs. ANIMALS 8 healthy adult sexually intact female dogs. PROCEDURE Urethral pressure profilometry was used to measure maximal urethral closure(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the results of percutaneous aortic valvuloplasty in 50 patients (29 men and 21 women, mean age 74 years) at 6 months by Doppler echocardiography performed 24 hours before, 24 hours, 3 and 6 months after the procedure. The following parameters were compared: maximum instantaneous transaortic pressure gradient; mean(More)
