OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of tibial plateau leveling on joint motion in canine stifle joints in which the cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) had been severed. STUDY DESIGN In vitro cadaver study. ANIMALS Six canine cadaver hind legs. METHODS Radiographs of the stifle joints were made to evaluate the tibial plateau angle with respect to the long axis of the tibia. The specimens were mounted in a custom-made testing device to measure cranio-caudal translation of the tibia with respect… CONTINUE READING
