Ultrasound of the tarsus, like other joints in the horse, provides valuable information to document and characterize soft tissue and osseous injury. The collateral ligaments, superficial digital flexor tendon, long digital extensor tendon, gastrocnemius tendon, and peroneus tertius are most commonly affected, but injuries to all tendons and ligaments can be seen. The frequency of wounds makes the tarsus a prime target for septic arthritis, tenosynovitis, and bursitis. Ultrasound can be used to… Expand
Systematic Exploration of the Equine Tarsus by Ultrasonography
TLDR
A standard protocol of ultrasonographic exploration of the tarsal region in transversal and longitudinal planes is proposed, with the aim to spread with an accurate location of the anatomical structures. Expand
Carpal collateral ligament desmopathy in three horses
TLDR
Radiographic and ultrasonographic findings in three horses with severe damage to the collateral ligaments of the carpus, associated with degenerative joint disease, are described and ultrasound was found to be an accurate method for diagnosing the injury to the ligaments. Expand
Radiographic and ultrasonographic appearances of chronic tenosynovitis of the lateral extensor tendon at the right tarsus in an Argentinian polo pony
A 19-year-old polo pony presented with mild lameness alongside a lateral protuberance of the right tarsus. Radiographic findings revealed various defects, including an osteochondral lesion of theExpand
Ultrasonographic findings in 100 horses with tarsal region disorders.
TLDR
The results show that the main disease process can affect all aspects of the tarsus, and that a complete and systematic ultrasonographic examination is mandatory when investigating the tartsal region. Expand
Ultrasound diagnosis of lateral digital extensor muscle, tendon, and synovial sheath alterations in Colombian creole horses with clinical signs of tarsus hyperflexion.

TLDR
These findings may be related to the presentation of tarsus hyperflexion that could characterize the classic stringhalt in CCH. Expand
Magnetic resonance imaging of plantar soft tissue structures of the tarsus and proximal metatarsus in foals and adult horses.
TLDR
Spin and gradient echoes in MRI were suitable to identify and assess soft tissue structures at the plantar aspect of the equine tarsus and proximal metatarsus and the morphology of the proximal suspensory ligament was not affected by age-related changes. Expand
Computed Tomography and Cross‐sectional Anatomy of the Normal Dromedary Camel Tarsus (One Humped Camel)
TLDR
Six cadaver pelvic limbs, obtained from three clinically and radiographically sound dromedary camels, were scanned in both soft tissue and bone windows starting from the calcaneal tuber towards the proximal metatarsus to provide a detailed computed tomographic (CT) anatomic reference for the dromingary camel tarsus. Expand
Conservative management of comminuted central tarsal bone fracture and joint instability in a horse.
Summary A comminuted fracture of the central tarsal bone, fragmentation of the fourth tarsal bone and associated joint instability was diagnosed in a 14-year-old Sport Horse mare who presented forExpand
Comparison of cross-sectional anatomy and computed tomography of the tarsus in horses.
TLDR
CT of the tarsus is recommended when radiography and ultrasonography are inconclusive and during preoperative planning for treatment of complex fractures, and CT of pathological changes was useful. Expand
CLINICAL, ULTRASONOGRAPHIC, AND ARTHROSCOPIC CHARACTERISTICS OF HAIR SHAFTS WITHIN SYNOVIAL STRUCTURES OF SEVEN HORSES

  • 2017
TLDR
Clinical, ultrasonographic, and arthroscopic characteristics of confirmed hair shafts within synovial structures of seven horses showed support for the use of ultrasonography as a complementary diagnostic method for ruling out hair foreign material in horses with signs of inflammatory or septic synovitis/tenosynovitis.

TLDR
Equine tarsocrural collateral ligaments (CL) were dissected grossly and Sequential cutting of CL in any order indicated that the short medial CL were responsible for the snap-joint phenomenon observed at the equine tARSocrural joint. Expand
Five cases of gastrocnemius tendinitis in the horse.
TLDR
Five horses had lameness associated with lesions identified ultrasonographically in the gastrocnemius tendon in the latter region and remained lame 2-3 months after initial examination, with minimal change in the ultrasonographic appearance of the lesion(s). Expand
Rupture of the peroneus tertius tendon in 27 horses.
TLDR
If the horse was racing at the time of injury or had an additional structure injured besides the peroneus tertius tendon, it was less likely to return to its intended use and to be euthanized due to persistent lameness. Expand
Osteolytic lesions of the tuber calcanei in two horses.
TLDR
The prognosis for complete recovery for horses with this condition appears to be unfavorable, and surgical debridement of the osseous lesion was of no benefit and may have been detrimental. Expand
