OBJECTIVE To systematically review the evidence available for nonsurgical management of hip dysplasia (HD). [...] Key MethodSTUDY DESIGN Literature review. METHODS Databases (Pubmed, Veterinary Information Network) were searched for clinical studies on nonsurgical management of HD in dogs. The evidence in each study was reviewed and assigned a score (I-IV) based on previously reported levels of evidence. Expand
A systematic review of the literature describing the efficacy of surgical treatments for canine hip dysplasia (1948-2012).
TLDR
Despite a large number of publications describing clinical outcome after surgical treatments for canine hip dysplasia, few provided strong evidence to allow an adequate assessment of therapeutic efficacy. Expand
Treatment of Canine Hip Dysplasia : A Review
Hip dysplasia, one of the most common orthopaedic diseases in dogs, can lead to chronic pain and functional impairment (Lust et al., 1973). Hip joint laxity is considered a major risk factor leadingExpand
Diagnosis, prevention, and management of canine hip dysplasia: a review
TLDR
Identification of distinct CHD phenotypes and targeting evidence-based conservative and invasive treatments for each may significantly advance prevention and management of a prevalent, debilitating condition in canine companions. Expand
[Use of gold implants as a treatment of pain related to canine hip dysplasia--a review. Part 2: Clinical trials and case reports].
TLDR
While the case and retrospective studies reported impressive therapeutic success in treating cHD-incurred pain with gold implantation, a pain-reducing effect was only demonstrated in one of the three double-blind studies, and the only study that carried out an objective evaluation of the therapeutic result of gold implants came to the conclusion that the method is ineffective.

INVESTIGAÇÃO medicina veterinária Revisão de Literatura
TLDR
This paper aims to discuss the hip dysplasia in dogs, mainly involving diagnostic methods and treatment options, emphasizing conservative measures, and based on adding information such as patient history, clinical signs and radiographic examination of the pelvis. Expand
A retrospective study on findings of canine hip dysplasia screening in Kenya
TLDR
German Shepherd and Golden Retriever appear to be the most affected breeds and stringent measures be imposed to dog breeding programs to avoid transmission of this undesirable trait and consequently improve the welfare and the quality of dog breeds in Kenya. Expand
Preliminary evaluation of prevalence of hip and elbow dysplasia in Boerboel dogs
TLDR
Hip dysplasia prevalence in Boerboels (65%) is higher than that of ED, and further research on hip and elbow disease of African large dogs is indicated. Expand
Efficacy of an oral hyaluronate and collagen supplement as a preventive treatment of elbow dysplasia
TLDR
Oral treatment with Hyaloral may have a potential cumulative action that provides protection against dysplasia and significantly improves symptoms of elbow Dysplasia. Expand
Intra-articular botulinum toxin A (BoNT/A) for pain management in dogs with osteoarthritis secondary to hip dysplasia: A randomized controlled clinical trial
TLDR
Both treatments were safe and reduced the clinical signs associated with hip osteoarthritis, however, IA BoNT/A (25 IU) did not provide better pain relief than the control treatment. Expand

Applications of evidence-based medicine: cranial cruciate ligament injury repair in the dog.
TLDR
There is not a single surgical procedure that has enough data to recommend that it can consistently return dogs to normal function after CCL injury, and the application of evidence-based medicine in analyzing the current available evidence suggests this. Expand
Conservative and medical management of hip dysplasia.
  • S. Johnston
  • Medicine
  • The Veterinary clinics of North America. Small animal practice
  • 1992
TLDR
Hip dysplasia has been managed conservatively and medically since the initial description of this disease in 1935, but only with the recent anecdotal reports of polysulfated glycosaminoglycan has there been any change in medical management of CHD. Expand
Retrospective evaluation of the long-term outcome of non-surgical management of 74 dogs with clinical hip dysplasia
TLDR
The long-term outcome for dogs treated non-surgically for clinical signs of canine hip dysplasia were evaluated retrospectively and between 31 and 49 of the dogs remained clinically affected according to their owner's assessment, and between 17 and 23 of the 24 dogs had abnormalities attributed to hip osteoarthritis according to the veterinary assessment. Expand
Evaluation of polysulfated glycosaminoglycan for the treatment of hip dysplasia in dogs.
TLDR
Dogs that were given 4.4 mg/kg of PSGAG showed the greatest improvement in orthopedic scores, whereas dogs in the placebo group showed the smallest improvement; however, the differences in clinical improvement between the four treatment groups were not statistically significant. Expand
Gait analysis of dogs with hip dysplasia treated with gold bead implantation acupuncture
A “double blinded” prospective study was undertaken to determine whether gold bead implantation acupuncture alleviates lameness and pain in dogs, affected by moderate to severe hip dysplasia.Expand
Lifelong diet restriction and radiographic evidence of osteoarthritis of the hip joint in dogs.
TLDR
The data indicated that development of hip joint osteoarthritis was not bimodal in these dogs but occurred as a continuum throughout life, thus favorably affecting both duration and quality of life. Expand
Two years follow-up study of the pain-relieving effect of gold bead implantation in dogs with hip-joint arthritis
TLDR
The present study revealed that the pain-relieving effect of gold bead implantation observed in the blinded study continued throughout the two-year follow-up period. Expand
Effect of weight reduction on clinical signs of lameness in dogs with hip osteoarthritis.
TLDR
Results suggest that in overweight dogs with hind limb lameness secondary to hip osteoarthritis, weight reduction alone may result in a substantial improvement in clinical lameness. Expand
Clinical hip dysplasia in growing dogs: the long-term results of conservative management
The long-term results of conservative management in 68 immature dogs with clinical and radiographic evidence of hip dysplasia are described. Seventy-six per cent of the dogs had minimal gaitExpand
Double-blind evaluation of implants of gold wire at acupuncture points in the dog as a treatment for osteoarthritis induced by hip dysplasia
TLDR
Thirty-eight dogs with hip dysplasia were studied to evaluate the use of gold wire implants at acupuncture points around the hip joints and showed a significant improvement of locomotion and reduction in signs of pain. Expand
