  • OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to evaluate by clinical, radiographic, and force plate gait analyses the effect of post-surgical intra-articular injections of autologous platelet concentrates (PC) in a small group of dogs with cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) rupture. METHODS The ten dogs used in this study were initially presented with CCL rupture and underwent ligament replacement surgery by fascia lata autograft guided by arthroscopy. Six dogs received three intra-articular… CONTINUE READING
