OBJECTIVE To review the biomechanical considerations, experimental investigations, and clinical data pertaining to tibial osteotomy procedures for treatment of cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) insufficiency in dogs. STUDY DESIGN Literature review. METHODS Literature search through Pub Med, Veterinary Information Network, Commonwealth Agricultural Bureau(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) on femorotibial contact mechanics and 3-dimensional (3D) kinematics in cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL)-deficient stifles of dogs. STUDY DESIGN In vitro biomechanical study. ANIMALS Unpaired pelvic limbs from 8 dogs, weighing 28-35 kg. METHODS Digital pressure sensors placed(More)

Study Design- In vitro biomechanical study. Animals- Unpaired pelvic limbs from 8 dogs, weighing 28-35 kg. Methods- Digital pressure sensors placed subjacent(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the influence of stifle joint flexion angle, cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) integrity, tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO), and cranial tibial subluxation on the distance between the location of the origin and insertion of the CrCL (CrCL(d)) in dogs. SAMPLES 4 pairs of pelvic limbs from adult dog cadavers weighing 23 to 34(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the effect of tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) on femorotibial subluxation during standing in dogs with cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) insufficiency. STUDY DESIGN Prospective clinical study. ANIMALS Fifteen dogs weighing 20-45 kg with unilateral complete CrCL insufficiency. METHODS Force-platform analysis, and lateral(More)
The canine knee is morphologically similar to the human knee and thus dogs have been used in experimental models to study human knee pathology. To date, there is limited data of normal canine 3D knee kinematics during daily activities. The objective of this study was to characterize 3D in-vivo femorotibial kinematics in normal dogs during commonly performed(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the efficacy and toxic effects of epirubicin for the adjuvant treatment of dogs with splenic hemangiosarcoma and identify prognostic factors. DESIGN Retrospective case series. ANIMALS 59 client-owned dogs that underwent splenectomy for splenic hemangiosarcoma treated with or without epirubicin. PROCEDURES Medical records were(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of antebrachial rotation at 3 elbow flexion angles on contact mechanics and 3-dimensional (3D) alignment of normal dog elbows. STUDY DESIGN Ex vivo biomechanical study. ANIMALS Unpaired thoracic limbs from 18 dogs (mean ± SD weight, 27 ± 4 kg). METHODS With the limb under 200 N axial load, digital pressure sensors(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of transection of the medial caudal menisco-tibial ligament on contact mechanics in a canine cadaveric model of cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) rupture and tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO). STUDY DESIGN Ex vivo biomechanical study. SAMPLE POPULATION Unpaired pelvic limbs (n=8) from 28-35 kg dogs. METHODS(More)
A 4 yr old spayed female mixed-breed dog presented with a 2 yr history of recurring increases in liver enzymes. Two congenital portosystemic shunts (PSSs) were identified using computed tomography (CT) angiography, which included a portoazygous and portorenal extrahepatic shunt. Double right renal veins were also identified. The shunts were successfully(More)
