Objective: The aim of this study was to describe a novel limb-sparing technique for the management of feline bone neoplasia using a custom-made femoral endoprosthesis in combination with a total knee replacement (TKR) prosthesis.
Limb-Sparing Surgery in Two Cats Using a Femoral Endoprosthesis with an Integrated Total Knee Replacement Implant
Systematic review of postoperative rehabilitation interventions after cranial cruciate ligament surgery in dogs
Objective: To critically evaluate the evidence for rehabilitation interventions following surgery for cranial cruciate ligament disease (CCLD) in dogs.
Study design: Systematic review.
Custom-built constrained uniaxial and rotating hinge total knee replacement in cats: Clinical application, design principles, surgical technique, and clinical outcome
Objective: To describe the design principles and evolution, surgical technique, and outcome for custom constrained (uniaxial and rotating hinge) total knee replacement (TKR) in cats.
Study design: Retrospective case series.
Animals: Nine cats with traumatic stifle luxation (n = 8) or severe distal femoral deformity (n = 1) were considered suitable candidates.
Comparison of Intra-and Postoperative Complications between Bilateral Simultaneous and Staged TPLO with Arthroscopy in 176 Cases
Objective: The aim of this study was to compare the resulting short-term complications after simultaneous (SIM) or staged (ST) tibial plateau levelling osteotomy (TPLO) in patients that presented with bilaterally torn cranial cruciate ligaments.
Study design: This was a retrospective study.
Aseptic loosening of total knee arthroplasty continues to be a challenging clinical problem. The progression of the loosening process, from the initial well-fixed component, is not fully understood.
In-Vivo Three-Dimensional Knee Kinematics in Goats With Unilateral Anterior Cruciate Ligament Transection
Although the goat is an established animal model in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) research, in-vivo kinematics associated with ACL deficiency have not been previously described in this species.
Femorotibial kinematics in dogs treated with TPLO for cranial cruciate ligament insufficiency: An in vivo fluoroscopic analysis during walking
OBJECTIVE: To determine the ability of tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) to address abnormal femorotibial kinematics caused by cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) rupture during walking in dogs.
STUDY DESIGN: Prospective, clinical.
OBJECTIVE: To determine the influence of postoperative extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) on hind limb use after tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO).
STUDY DESIGN: Randomized, prospective clinical trial.
OBJECTIVE: To review fundamental principles of tissue healing and physical rehabilitation as they apply to dogs recovering from cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) surgery.
STUDY DESIGN: Invited Review.
SAMPLE POPULATION: None.
OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of tibial rotation on radiographic tibial plateau angle (TPA) measurement in normal and cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL)-deficient stifles.
STUDY DESIGN: Cadaveric study.
SAMPLE POPULATION: Five pairs of canine cadaver hind limbs with no stifle osteoarthritis.
