The development of osteoarthrosis in unstable knee joints of dogs after transection of the anterior cruciate ligament is greatly accelerated when the afferent nerve fibers from the ipsilateral hindlimb have been interrupted by dorsal root ganglionectomy before transection. The purpose of the current study was to determine whether partial loss of the afferent fibers from the knee joints of dogs, accomplished by neurectomy of the primary articular nerves before transection of the ligament, also… CONTINUE READING
