REASON FOR PERFORMING STUDY Current noninvasive techniques for imaging the soft tissue structures of the stifle have limitations. Arthroscopy is commonly used for the investigation and treatment of stifle pain. Cranial and caudal arthroscopic approaches to the femorotibial joints are used. However, complete examination of the axial aspect of the medial femorotibial joint (MFTJ) is not possible currently. OBJECTIVE To develop a cranial approach to the caudal pouch of the MFTJ and to assess… CONTINUE READING
