Objective: To evaluate long-term clinical outcomes of dogs surgically treated for proximal humeral osteochondrosis (OC).

Study design: Cross-sectional study.

Sample population: Twenty dogs (n = 26 shoulders).

Category: Humerus

Objective: To design a precontoured plating system for humeral condylar fracture repair in spaniels with humeral intracondylar fissure (HIF) and quantify accuracy of fit of the system on 3D printed bone models.

Study design: Experimental on 3D printed models.

Objective The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence, breed predisposition and fracture conformation of humeral condylar fractures (HCF) over a 10-year period. Results were compared with published studies emanating from the United Kingdom exploring effect of breed on HCF.

Objective To report the incidence of medial epicondylar fissure fracture (MEFF) after medial-to-lateral transcondylar screw placement in dogs with humeral intracondylar fissure (HIF) and to identify risk factors for MEFF.

Study design Retrospective study.

Sample population Seventy-four client-owned dogs (88 elbows).

Objectives: The aims of this study were to describe the type, presentation and prognostic factors of feline humeral fractures over a 10-year period and to compare three stabilisation systems for feline humeral diaphyseal fractures.

A 6-year-old, male, boxer breed dog presented with a 1-month history of severe, gradually progressive right thoracic limb lameness without history of trauma.

Previous medication included oclacitinib for management of atopic skin disease.

The dog was diagnosed with humeral intracondylar fissure (HIF) on computed tomography. Therefore, HIF should be considered as a differential diagnosis for thoracic limb lameness in this breed.

Objectives: The objective of this study was to report outcome and postoperative complications following stabilisation of humeral condylar fractures in skeletally immature French bulldogs with a transcondylar screw combined with locking or hybrid locking plates.
