OBJECTIVES: To report the frequency of sciatic neurapraxia (SN) associated with total hip replacement (THR), to determine outcome (recovery rate) after SN associated with THR, and to identify potential causes of THR-associated SN in dogs. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective study. ANIMALS: Dogs (n=786; 1000 hips) that had THR.

The use of the AO (Arbeitgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesenfragen) veterinary T-plates (1.5/2 mm and 2.7/3.5 mm) for stabilisation of supracotyloid ilial fractures in 18 cats and five dogs was evaluated in a retrospective study. The distal fragment from the coxofemoral joint ranged from 0.5 cm to 1 cm with a mean distance of 0.85 cm. Twenty out of 23 (87%) ilial fractures healed in original alignment.

In order to determine the prevalence of hip dysplasia (HD) from radiographs that were submitted for authorative grading, and its changes over the time in 31 breeds of dogs in France, a 14 year-retrospective study was conducted. Significant differences were observed between breeds, with HD prevalence ranging from 59.7% (Cane Corso) to 3.9% (Siberian Husky).

Objective-To evaluate correlations among measurements on radiographic and computed tomography (CT) images with articular cartilage microdamage in lax hip joints of dogs. Animals-12 adult mixed-breed hounds. Procedures-Pelvic CT and radiography were performed. Hip joints were harvested following euthanasia. Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) and PennHIP radiograph reports were obtained.

Objective-To compare the results of 2 canine registries for classification of the hip joints for dysplasia by breed, and to relate the percentage of dysplastic dogs with body metric characteristics. Sample Population-Data on the ranking order of hip dysplasia by breed from 2 registries for 156 dog breeds.

A retrospective study was conducted in a single referral centre to evaluate osteoarthritis (OA) progression in hips operated on by triple pelvic osteotomy (TPO) compared to unoperated joints. Fifty-nine operated hips in 41 dogs were included (18 bilateral and 23 unilateral TPO’s). A similar technique was used in all cases. A 30° acetabular ventroversion with concomitant 5mm lateralisation was always accomplished. Iliac osteotomy was stabilised using a contoured “Chancrin’s TPO plate”.

Osteoarthritis (OA) is an insidiously progressive disease producing pain and loss of function in affected joints. The suffering and restrictions on exercise that the active disease produces, make a profound impact on the quality of life of the patient. Fortunately, although the disease is widespread, estimated to affect one in five of all dogs, it is not always associated with debilitating disease [1]. Indeed it has been speculated that only animals with moderate to severe OA pathology are identified and presented as clinical problems [2].
