Canine Appendicular Osteosarcoma: Staging and Palliative Radiation Therapy
The utility of whole body CT as a staging tool for dogs with appendicular OSA was determined, the lesion detection rate of bone scintigraphy, long bone survey radiography and whole bodyCT was compared and the prevalence of CT-detected lung metastasis was determined. Expand
Immunohistochemical Validation of Spontaneously Arising Canine Osteosarcoma as a Model for Human Osteosarcoma.
It is suggested that canine OS may represent a useful model for the study of the human disease by evaluating immunohistochemically the expression of markers known to be important in human OS. Expand
Mechanical properties of canine osteosarcoma‐affected antebrachia†
Structural mechanical properties were more variable in neoplastic antebrchia than unaffected antebrachia, which was partially attributable to differences in bone geometry related to dog size, and strength, stiffness, and energy to yield and failure, were lower in neoprene than in unaffected ante brachia. Expand
Ulnar osteosarcoma in dogs: 30 cases (1992-2008).
The prognosis for ulnar osteosarcoma in this population was no worse and may have been better than the prognosis in dogs with osteosARcoma involving other appendicular sites and the efficacy of chemotherapy requires further evaluation. Expand
Predictors of outcome in dogs treated with adjuvant carboplatin for appendicular osteosarcoma: 65 cases (1996-2006).
Carboplatin administration was well tolerated and resulted in a disease-free interval and median survival time similar to those of other published protocols. Expand
A complex histopathological challenge: suspicion of an osteoblastoma-like osteosarcoma arising from the second thoracic vertebra in a cat
This case report highlights the difficulty in the diagnosis and definition of osseous neoplasia in cats and provides a literature review of osteoblastic tumours in cats. Expand
Osteosarcoma in a Dachshund: cytological and histopathological aspects
A case of osteosarcoma in the left pelvic limb of a Dachshund, diagnosed by fine-needle aspiration cytology and confirmed by histopathological evaluation is described, and the patient underwent limb amputation and doxorubicin chemotherapy; however, the dog died. Expand
The Musculoskeletal System
Characterization of five newly derived canine osteosarcoma cell lines
Characterization of 5 newly generated canine osteosarcoma cell lines may identify a variety of characteristics valuable for understanding the disease process and developing treatments for osteosARcoma in both species. Expand
Computed tomography imaging characteristics of canine nasal chondrosarcoma.
OBJECTIVES To describe the CT appearance of canine nasal chondrosarcoma and compare calcification patterns with those described in humans. MATERIALS AND METHODS CT examinations of dogs with biopsyExpand
