OBJECTIVE To evaluate the use of a locking compression plate (LCP) with monocortical screw purchase for stabilization of the canine cervical spine. STUDY DESIGN Experimental study. ANIMALS Cadaveric canine cervical spine specimens (n = 7). METHODS Flexion and extension bending moments were applied to canine cadaveric specimens (C3-C6) in 4-point bending, before and after creation of a ventral slot at C4-C5, and after fixation with a 5 hole, 3.5 mm LCP with monocortical screw placement… CONTINUE READING
