Osteochondrosis is a common and clinically important joint disorder that occurs in human beings and in multiple animal species, most commonly pigs, horses, and dogs. This disorder is defined as a focal disturbance of enchondral ossification and is regarded as having a multifactorial etiology, with no single factor accounting for all aspects of the disease. The most commonly cited etiologic factors are heredity, rapid growth, anatomic conformation, trauma, and dietary imbalances; however, only… Expand
Pathogenesis of osteochondrosis dissecans: How does this translate to management of the clinical case?
TLDR
Osteochondrosis is the most prevalent developmental orthopaedic disease in the horse and the impact on economics of the equine industry and on horse welfare is large and can only be lessened by the judicious management of both horse breeding and horse husbandry. Expand
Articular osteochondrosis: a comparison of naturally-occurring human and animal disease.
TLDR
A broad range of similarities exists between OC affecting humans and animals, including predilection sites, clinical presentation, radiographic/MRI changes, and histological appearance of the end-stage lesion, suggesting a shared pathogenesis across species. Expand
Alterations in sclerostin protein in lesions of equine osteochondrosis
TLDR
Results indicate that sclerostin may be contributing to the development of OC lesions by inhibiting extracellular matrix remodelling or may reflect the response of damaged cartilage. Expand
The relationship of standing up of warmblood foals and the prevalence of osteochondrosis, between farms.
TLDR
The hypothesis that there is an association between the way of standing up in foals and the development of OC is tested and there was a significant relation between farms and slipping legs, but high risk farms have significant more slipping foals than low risk farms, and further investigation is needed to prove the relation between sliding and theDevelopment of OCD. Expand
Pathogenesis of epiphyseal osteochondrosis.
TLDR
It is speculated that an altered type II collagen metabolism may be involved in the early changes associated with OC, and further studies of OC susceptible animals in utero and the first weeks of life are required to elucidate the cause of vessel necrosis and the exact role oftype II collagen structure and metabolism.

Osteocondrosis en equinos: un problema latente de la industria hípica
: This review is focused on osteochondrosis (OC) in horses. OC is a disturbance in endochondral ossification of mutifactorial etiology affecting equines and other animal species. There is noExpand
Further evidence for better prevention of equine osteochondrosis
TLDR
Although its impact on the performance of affected horses has not been demonstrated in every breed or in all types of osteochondrosis, the lower sales value of affected animals and/or their not being approved for breeding purposes are actually issues. Expand
Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) in Horses – Molecular Background of its Pathogenesis and Perspectives for Progenitor Stem Cell Therapy
TLDR
It would be important to provide more information on the exact pathophysiological mechanism(s) underlying early OC(D) lesions, in order to implement innovative strategies involving the use of progenitor stem cells, which are considered nowadays as a promising approach to regenerative medicine. Expand
Problems and pointers in osteochondrosis: Twenty years on.
Twenty years ago a supplement of Equine Veterinary Journal was devoted to equine osteochondrosis (OC) and recognised the importance of this developmental disease to the equine industry. In theExpand
Delayed endochondral ossification in early medial coronoid disease (MCD): a morphological and immunohistochemical evaluation in growing Labrador retrievers.
TLDR
Investigation of early micromorphological changes occurring in articular cartilage and the postnatal development of the medial coronoid process (MCP) before MCD demonstrated that MCD was initially associated with a disturbance of endochondral ossification. Expand

TLDR
It is believed that local ischemia secondary to defects in cartilage canal blood supply is a key factor in the initiation of lesions of osteochondrosis and explains many of the features of this disease. Expand
Osteochondrosis in adolescent animals: an endocrine disorder?
TLDR
Results indicate there is a posit ive correlation between rapid growth and the incidence of joint lesions, and it seems appropr ia te to use osteochondrosis as a treatment for teodystrophy, including the lesions repor ted in this paper. Expand
Current Concept Review - Osteochondritis Dissecans*
TLDR
The treatment of osteochondritis dissecans has evolved from the removal of loose bodies to the resurfacing of defects with an osteochondral autogenous graft158, but the results of current treatment are still not uniformly successful. Expand

The anatomy, etiology, evaluation, classification, treatment, and expected outcome of osteochondritis dissecans lesions are discussed. Expand
Osteochondritis (osteochondrosis) dissecans: A review and new MRI classification
TLDR
MRI can noninvasively separate non-surgical from possibly surgical lesions and should replace diagnostic arthroscopy, and will become the method of choice for staging. Expand

Dyschondroplasias, including osteochondrosis, in boars between 25 and 169 days of age: histologic changes.
TLDR
The age of onset and pathogenesis of osteochondrosis, a defect of endochondral ossification, is determined and dyschondroplasia is the preferred term to be used generically and then qualified by morphologic description, since causations may be different. Expand
Studies on growth cartilage in the horse and their application to aetiopathogenesis of dyschondroplasia (osteochondrosis)
TLDR
A preliminary hypothesis for pathogenesis suggests that there are a number of factors capable of initiating the condition and one of these involves high circulating insulin levels from high energy feeding which may affect chondrocyte maturation leading to altered matrix metabolism and faulty mineralization resulting in the formation of cartilage cores which characterize the condition. Expand
General and aetiologic factors in canine osteochondrosis
TLDR
Osteochondrosis was most common in the elbow joint, followed by the shoulder joint, the stifle and the hock joint, and the high frequency of bilateral lesions and the occurrence of osteochondrosis in more than one pair of joints in 25 of the 89 dogs indicates that general factors are important.
