This report describes two dogs with bilateral bicipital tenosynovitis which were managed using double tenodesis. Surgical repair involved the attachment of the tendon to the humerus with a bone screw and plastic spiked washer, and a double Bunnell-Meyer suture. Six months postoperatively, neither of the treated dogs displayed any lameness on clinical(More)
The presented paper presents updated information concerning magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of shoulder joint, elbow joint and knee joint in dogs. It describes indications, planes, standard sequences, slice thickness to perform MRI examination of above mentioned joints. Besides general information about basic physics use in magnetic resonance imaging, and(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging is the best imaging modality for the brain and spine. Quality of the received images depends on many technical factors. The most significant factors are: positioning the patient, proper coil selection, selection of appropriate sequences and image planes. The present contrast between different tissues provides an opportunity to(More)
The present review informs about the current status regarding use of interlocking nailing for fracture repair in animals. The clinical limitations of interlocking nailing and its subsequent improvement by evolving novel nail design or supplementation with type I ESF using hybrid nail bolt/ESF pin has been dealt. The biomechanical and clinical evaluation of(More)
This paper discusses 28 canine patients subjected to low-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the spinal cord for neurological indications. The authors describe and compare the used MRI sequences with an indication of the most effective sequences in MRI examinations that require short scanning time. The most effective sequences supporting a quick(More)
The present case report describes three heavy dogs, Caucasian Shepherd breed, with chronic complete traumatic rupture of Achilles tendon, which was repaired with two types of sutures. Surgical treatment involved shortening the Achilles tendon, and using a locking loop suture technique and own suture technique with four buttons. Additionally, positional(More)
PURPOSE Bone marrow stem cell therapy is a new, attractive therapeutic approach for treatment of intervertebral disc (IVD) degeneration; however, leakage and backflow of transplanted cells into the structures surrounding the disc may lead to the formation of undesirable osteophytes. The purpose of this study was to develop a technique for minimally invasive(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the response of hemostatic dressings. Coagulation and fibrinolytic systems, red blood cell parameters, platelet and leukocyte counts were evaluated after the application of hemostatic dressings: QuikClot, Chitoauze and Celox gauze. The experiment was performed on ten pigs.
A 7-year-old female, German Shepherd with urinary and faecal voiding difficulties was admitted to the clinic. The patient was subjected to neurological, ultrasonographic and radiological examinations as well as blood and urine tests. Based on clinical observations and test results, the dog was diagnosed with detrusor-urethral dyssynergia. The prescribed(More)
