OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of retrograde femoral reaming on the blood flow of the distal femur and the cruciate ligaments. DESIGN Canine experimental study. SETTING Tertiary referral and teaching hospital in Toronto, Canada. PARTICIPANTS Thirteen skeletally mature, cross-bred dogs. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE Red cell flux (RCF) was measured by using a laser Doppler flowmetry probe at three bone sites in the distal femur (trochlear groove, medial condyle, and lateral condyle) and at the… CONTINUE READING
