Loop-suture tenorrhaphy with local application of autogenous leukoreduced PRP appears to offer an acceptable option to treat CCT injuries in dogs.
Dogs with concomitant tarsal fractures are predisposed to major complications.
Good health with normal gait and activity level at long-term follow-up 8 years postoperatively
An apparently adequate method of stabilizing the tarsocrural joint following collateral ligament injury
High occurrence of complications associated with calcaneal fracture stabilization in these patients
Early postoperative and long-term results seem to be favourable using a mini circular transarticular external fixation system
Fracture of the central tarsal bone is an uncommon injury in dogs and seems not to have been described previously in cats.
The anatomy of the canine tarsus can be readily identified on MR imaging
