Neãas A. , M. Dvofiák, J . Zat loukal : Incidence of Osteochondrosis in Dogs and Its Late Diagnosis. Acta Vet. Brno 1999, 68: 131–139. An incidence of osteochondrosis in dogs from the total number of 38 126 patients treated in the Clinic of Surgery and Orthopedics at University of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Sciences in Brno from 1989 till the end of October 1998 is reviewed. A total of 112 dogs (i.e., 0.3% of the patients) were diagnosed and treated surgically for osteochondrosis. The…

Assessment of treatment of Osteochondrosis dissecans (OCD) of shoulder joint in dogs--the results of two years of experience.
The study proved that the early diagnosis of OCD strongly influence the recovery rate and may inhibit the development of degenerative changes in the joint (DJD) and the best therapeutic effects were obtained in dogs aged 6-10 months, which underwent surgery.
Structure and Pathologies of Articular Cartilage
The aim of the review was to describe a complex microstructure and biomechanical properties of the articular cartilage as well as a current review of its pathologies encountered in veterinary
Lifespan and disease predispositions in the Irish Wolfhound: A review
Findings on lifespan as well as disease predispositions that have been reported in the literature are reviewed, including hisreditary mechanisms found so far, including their implications for breeding healthier dogs.
Evidence of a Major Gene From Bayesian Segregation Analyses of Liability to Osteochondral Diseases in Pigs
This is the first study to report evidence of major genes for osteochondral lesions in pigs; these results may also form a basis for underpinning the genetic inheritance of this disease in other animals as well as in humans.

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.
Evaluation of the prognostic value of positive-contrast shoulder arthrography for bilateral osteochondrosis lesions in dogs.
Shoulder arthrograms from 40 dogs with bilateral lesions were evaluated, and development of thick articular cartilage over the subchondral defect or a detached cartilage flap lodged in the caudal pouch of the shoulder joint was a favorable prognostic sign.
Ischemic necrosis of cartilage in spontaneous and experimental lesions of osteochondrosis
The results suggest that the viability of epiphyseal cartilage in the articularepip Hyseal Cartilage complex is highly dependent on an adequate blood supply from cartilage canal vessels, and strongly implicates a defect in blood supply in the pathogenesis of osteochondrosis.

Two caudolateral approaches to the canine scapulohumeral joint that do not require myotomy, tenotomy, or osteotomy were used to expose the humeral heads of both scapulohumeral joints in 10 clinically
Osteochondritis dissecans of the canine stifle joint.
In fourteen dogs with osteochondritis dissecans of the stifle joint the lesion was found in the articular cartilage of the medial condyle of the femur in six and the lateral condyle in eight. Both
Aetiopathogenesis of canine elbow osteochondrosis: a study of loose fragments removed at arthrotomy.
Differences in the histological and ultrastructural appearance of the two lesions tend to suggest that they are two separate disease entities, although they may occur together in the same joint.

It is proposed that repetitive microtrauma is one of the important causes of OCD in the humeral head and the most authentic treatment for OCD with a partial detached osteochondral fragment is removal of this fragment and drilling.

Osteochondrosis can occur in the stifle joint(s) of young, rapidly growing large breeds of dogs, and the osteochondral defect in the femoral condyle and stifles can cause clinically apparent lameness.
Osteochondritis dissecans of the femoral head of a Pekingese.
An 8-month-old male Pekingese was admitted with a 1-month history of right hindlimb lameness and crepitation in the right coxofemoral joint and gross and microscopic examination of the femoral head resulted in a diagnosis of osteochondritis dissecans.
