OBJECTIVE (1) To determine whether an extracapsular patellar ligament/fascia lata graft would provide stability in the cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL)-deficient stifle comparable with that of the intact stifle. (2) To determine if different tibial anchor points would enhance stability of the CrCLdeficient stifle when compared with the standard fabellar-tibial suture (FTS) placement. STUDY DESIGN Experimental. ANIMALS Twenty-eight canine cadaver hind limbs. METHODS Stifles were mounted in… CONTINUE READING
