OBJECTIVE To describe the surgical technique and clinical features of total hip replacement (THR) due to hip trauma in cats. [] Key MethodSTUDY DESIGN Retrospective study. SAMPLE POPULATION Three client-owned cats that underwent THR to treat capital epiphyseal fractures, and five client-owned cats that underwent femoral head ostectomy (FHO).

Micro total hip replacement for dogs and cats: surgical technique and outcomes.

Micro THR is considered a satisfactory procedure for management of small breed dogs and cats with coxofemoral disease unresponsive to medical management and is a viable option to treat disabling disorders of the hip.

Short-Term Clinical and Radiographic Outcome after Stabilization of Femoral Capital Physeal Fractures with Cortical Positional Screws in 39 Cats.

Femoral capital physeal fractures in cats can be treated successfully with the use of cortical positional screws, and this technique may be considered as an alternative to other primary fixation techniques and salvage procedures for the treatment of femoral capital PHYseal injuries in cats.

Micro total hip replacement in dogs and cats.

MicroTHR is a practical and effective surgery in small breed dogs and cats with coxofemoral disease and good or excellent results are found.

Total hip replacement after failed femoral head and neck excision in two dogs and two cats.

Despite severe preoperative pain and chronic functional impairment in all cases, conversion of FHNE to THR produced marked clinical improvement including return to unrestricted exercise within 12 weeks of surgery.

Risk factors for loosening of cementless threaded femoral implants in canine total hip arthroplasty.

The authors do not recommend this model of the Helica THR due to this unacceptably high complication rate, and no significant risk factors could be identified in this group of dogs with Helica stem loosening.

Femoral head and neck excision in cats: medium- to long-term functional outcome in 18 cats

Cats have good-to-excellent medium- to long-term functional outcome after adequately performed femoral head and neck excision, based on the owner-completed questionnaire.

Successful revision of a femoral head ostectomy (complicated by postoperative sciatic neurapraxia) to a total hip replacement in a cat.

A three-year-old neutered male Domestic Medium Hair cat was referred for evaluation of a right hindlimb monoparesis of one month duration following a femoral head ostectomy (FHO) performed elsewhere.

Nano total hip replacement in 12 dogs.

As improvements in instrumentation and refinements in the technique are developed, NanoTHR can be considered an alternative to the femoral head and neck ostectomy (FHO) or medical management of coxofemoral disease for toy breed dogs.

Case report: Three-dimensionally printed patient-specific acetabular cage for revision surgery of aseptic loosening in a dog with micro total hip replacement

Based on the clinical outcomes, the use of a custom-made acetabular prosthesis can be an effective treatment option for revision arthroplasty in acetabula with severe bone loss and structural changes in small-breed dogs.

Effects of Femur Position on Radiographic Assessment of Femoral Head and Neck Excision Completeness in Cats.

Evaluation of craniocaudal radiographic views with the femurs in external rotation can increase the ability to assess the adequacy of the FHNE in cats.

Femur fractures that occur after canine total hip replacement should be repaired using plate and screw fixation augmented with cerclage wire when needed and Owners of high-risk patients (old dogs with osteopathies or previous hip surgery) should be counseled before THR.
