OBJECTIVE To compare the accuracy of reduction and biomechanical characteristics of acetabular osteotomies repaired with luted and nonluted reconstruction plates. STUDY DESIGN In vitro study. ANIMALS Pelves removed from 12 adult greyhounds. METHODS Acetabular osteotomies were created and repaired with a 6-hole, 2.7-mm reconstruction plates in 24 cadaver hemipelves. Ten hemipelves each were assigned to group I and group II. An impression cast of each acetabulum in group I was made before… CONTINUE READING
