  • Use of an Autologous Bone Graft Derived from Three Caudal Vertebrae for
           Reconstruction in a Dog with Radioulnar Atrophic Nonunion and

    • Authors: Goto; Masato, Ikeda, Hitoshi
      Abstract: This case report describes the case of a 4-year-old toy poodle who underwent reconstruction using an autologous caudal vertebral graft for nonunion and osteomyelitis of a left radioulnar fracture. Radial reconstruction was performed 14 days after the removal of existing implants. Three autologous caudal vertebrae mounted onto a titanium T-plate were used to fill the radial bone defect. Rehabilitation was initiated 3 weeks after surgery. By the fifth week after surgery, the dog showed weight bearing on the affected limb. One year after the reconstruction surgery, revision surgery for replacing all implants was performed due to increased radiolucency of the graft. The dog remained clinically stable, and radiographic bone union was complete 3 years and 2 months after the first surgery. An autologous caudal vertebral graft was successfully used for the treatment of a large radial defect in a dog suffering from atrophic nonunion. Clinical improvement was prompt, and the long-term functional outcome was satisfactory.

  • Effect of Needle and Extracorporeal Shockwave Stimulation of Acupuncture
           Points on Equine Chronic Multilimb Lameness Using a Single-Formula

    • Authors: Labens; Raphael, Schramme, Michael, Hale, Josephine Nicole Sampson, Teixeira-Neto, Antônio Raphael
      Abstract: Objective The aim of this study was to compare effects with conventional (needle and electroacupuncture, NAP) and shockwave stimulation of acupuncture points (SAP) on chronic multilimb lameness in horses. Study Design Randomized crossover block design; ten mature Standardbred mares with multilimb lameness (< 4/10) underwent 3-weekly point stimulations (NAP/SAP) selected on the basis of their uniform applicability. Groups were reversed following a washout period (9 weeks). Lameness at the trot was video recorded and quantified objectively using an inertial sensor-based system during a 4-week pre- and post-treatment period. Blinded expert review of recordings resulted in subjective qualitative (better, same, or worse) and quantitative outcome measures (0–10 lameness grade). Mixed effect repeated measures analyses were performed on objective quantitative gait parameters specific to fore (Vector sum [VSHead]) and hindlimb lameness (average differences in minimum [DIFFMINPelvis] and maximum pelvic height [DIFFMAXPelvis]) Qualitative data were assessed in non-parametric tests. Results SAP had no effect on forelimb but improved hindlimb lameness (DIFFMINPelvis; p

  • Patellar Groove Replacement in a Cat

    • Authors: Jaworski; Janusz, Krukowski, Maciej, Gosling, Mark, Burton, Neil
      Abstract: The aim of this study was to report patellar groove replacement in a 6-year-old domestic short hair cat with chronic unilateral pelvic limb lameness and severe femoro-patellar osteoarthritis due to medial patellar luxation. This study is a case report. Computed tomographic scan of the affected limb revealed marked periarticular osteophytosis, medial trochlear ridge erosion, marked flattening of femoral trochlea, ectopic pseudo-trochlear groove, and medial patellar luxation. Femoral trochlear ostectomy with patellar groove replacement, release of the medial fibrocartilage, partial parasagittal patellectomy, and lateral tibial tuberosity were performed. Clinical review and radiographs performed 53 days post-surgery revealed no complications and substantial decrease in lameness. Thirteen months postoperatively the cat scored 2/72 on the Feline Musculoskeletal Pain Index questionnaire by the owner, indicating good mobility, minimal discomfort, and good quality of life. As far as the authors are aware, this is the first report of the use of patellar groove replacement in the management of feline medial patellar luxation. Patellar groove replacement, in combination with adjunctive procedures, resulted in a substantial improvement in lameness in this cat with chronic medial patellar luxation and severe femoro-patellar osteoarthritis.

  • Bilateral Talocalcaneal and Talocalcaneocentral Luxation after a Road
           Traffic Accident in a Dog

    • Authors: Serrano-Crehuet; Tomas, Espinel-Rupérez, Jorge, Amorós, Olga, Mullins, Ronan A.
      Abstract: A 4-year-old, 25 kg, male, castrated, crossbreed dog was referred after having been driven over by a trailer 3 days prior. On examination, the dog was unable to ambulate on the pelvic limbs. There was crepitus, soft tissue swelling and pain on manipulation of the tarsi, with bilateral rotational and suspected mild lateral instability. Radiographs identified bilateral talocalcaneal luxation with dorsal displacement of the head of talus and bilateral avulsion fracture of lateral malleolus. A dorsomedial approach to the tarsocrural joint was performed bilaterally and the dorsal luxation of the head of talus was reduced. A 3.5 mm positional cortical screw was placed on both sides from dorsomedial head of talus to plantarolateral distal calcaneus. A temporary calcaneotibial screw was also applied bilaterally. No complications were encountered apart from mild bandage-related dermatitis, and the dog made a complete recovery. No lameness was identified on subjective gait assessment at 14 weeks and 12 months postoperatively; however, mild-to-moderate osteoarthritis affecting the talocalcaneocentral and centrodistal joints was identified at 12 months postoperatively.

  • Minimally Invasive Reduction and Stabilization of Fractures of the Humeral
           Condyle by Skeletal Traction in Dogs: 18 Cases

    • Authors: Benedini; Davide, Rovesti, Gian Luca, Barbieri, Fabio
      Abstract: Closed reduction or limited open reduction in conjunction with internal or external fixation has been recommended as the preferred treatment for many types of fractures, but this technique has rarely been recommended for articular fractures because of the need for anatomic alignment of articular surfaces. However, the proposed benefits of closed reduction should be applicable to articular fractures if appropriate reduction and implant placement can be achieved. The aim of this study was to retrospectively evaluate a surgical technique for minimally invasive reduction and stabilization of fractures of the humeral condyle by means of intraoperative traction applied to the ulna under fluoroscopic guidance. Nineteen fractures of the humeral condyle in eighteen dogs were reduced by intraoperative osteotaxis applied by traction of the ulna, minimally invasive approach to the epicondyle and fracture stabilization under fluoroscopic guidance. Postoperative reduction was considered good or excellent in most fractures. This technique can be considered as a potential option for the treatment of condylar fractures, allowing for minimally invasive reduction and stabilization, thus avoiding the need for surgical exposure of the elbow joint.

  • Avulsion of the Lateral Head of the Gastrocnemius in a Dog: Surgical
           Treatment and an Ex Vivo Study on Pathomechanisms

    • Authors: Roses; Leonor, Arnott, Davinia
      Abstract: A 6-year-old Border Collie presented with a 4-month history of progressive plantigrade stance of the right hindlimb, following a jump when chasing a ball. Avulsion of the lateral head of the gastrocnemius and tearing of the medial muscular belly were confirmed radiographically and ultrasonographically. Surgical repair of the lateral head was performed using two nylon mattress sutures placed around the fabella and through femoral condylar bone tunnels, followed by the application of a cranial half cast for 5 weeks. No complications were reported and follow-up owner's questionnaire at 18 months postoperatively revealed excellent results with the dog returning to normal activity.Avulsion of the lateral fabella was induced in a cadaveric limb and hyperflexion of the tarsus was simulated. Extreme hyperflexion of the tarsus only occurred once a subsequent tear of the medial belly of the gastrocnemius had developed, but without avulsion of the medial fabella.

    • Authors: Simlett-Moss; Angharad, Arthurs, Gareth, Schiborra, Frederike, Comerford, Eithne
      Abstract: A 2-year-old male neutered crossbreed was presented with a 7-month history of left pelvic limb lameness. Following a diagnosis of bilateral hip dysplasia, staged hybrid total hip replacements (THR) were performed 16 months apart. An ipsilateral grade II lateral patellar luxation (LPL) developed within 24 hours after each THR. Both LPLs were successfully treated by block recession sulcoplasty. Subjective gait analysis showed an abnormal pelvic limb gait following each THR. Clinical examination detected a grade II LPL on each operated limb. Computed tomography of both pelvic limbs revealed mild trochlear sulcus hypoplasia but no other skeletal abnormalities. Trochlear block recession sulcoplasty was performed 10 and 4 weeks respectively after THR. Long-term follow-up 12 months after the last surgery found minimal (0–1/10) lameness, no pain on clinical examination in both PLs and an overall low client-based metrology instrument mobility score of 2 (Liverpool Osteoarthritis in Dogs). This case report documents that in predisposed dogs, with hypoplastic trochlear ridges, LPL can occur secondary to THR and can be successfully managed by standard techniques to address the luxation. Furthermore, despite anecdotal verbal reports of medial patellar luxation occurring secondary to THR in dogs, this is the first published report of the management of any patellar luxation subsequent to THR.

  • Basilar Invagination in a Cat with Incomplete Ossification of the Atlas
           Treated by C1-C2 Arthrodesis

    • Authors: Fontalba-Navas; Jose Luis, Rodríguez-Gómez, Victoria, Calvo, Ignacio, Mateo-Pampliega, Isidro
      Abstract: Basilar invagination is a poorly described condition in veterinary medicine where the tip of the odontoid process projects into a normal foramen magnum. This report describes the clinical, radiological, and surgical treatment of a basilar invagination associated with instability of the atlantoaxial joint due to an incomplete ossification of the atlas in a cat. At presentation, the clinical signs included obtundation and non-ambulatory tetraparesis with postural reaction deficits in hindlimbs and left forelimb. Radiographic examination revealed cranial displacement of the axis with the dens impinging the basioccipital bone, and computed tomography confirmed the impaction of the axis on the atlas due to an incomplete ossification of the left half of the neural arch with the intercentrum. Magnetic resonance imaging confirmed severe spinal cord compression and myelopathy at this level. The cat underwent surgery for atlantoaxial arthrodesis using a ventral approach to C1-C2. Recovery after surgery was uneventful. Follow-up a year after surgery finds the cat free of neurological signs. An incomplete ossification of the atlas can lead to atlantoaxial instability and basilar invagination in the cat. Diagnosis can be made based on its radiological characteristics, the cranial displacement of the odontoid process in contact with the basioccipital bone being its main feature. This case was successfully treated by atlantoaxial arthrodesis.

  • Iatrogenic Iliopsoas Tendon Injury May Occur during Femoral Head and Neck
           Ostectomy—An Ex-Vivo Study in Dogs

    • Authors: Gillis; Charlotte E., Jaffe, Michael H., Lee, Alison M., Seitz, Marc A.
      Abstract: Objective The aim of this study was to determine if inadvertent iatrogenic damage to the iliopsoas tendon can occur during routine femoral head and neck ostectomy (FHO), using a cadaveric dog model. Study Design Four cadaveric specimens (eight hindlimbs total) of dogs that were humanely euthanatized for reasons unrelated to this study. Pre-experimental radiography confirmed absence of pelvic or femoral comorbidities. Each limb of each paired sample was randomly assigned as either dissection-only control or FHO. The simulated FHO procedures were performed by an American College of Veterinary Surgeons diplomate, and post-procedure radiography confirmed appropriate ostectomy. The FHO limbs underwent pre- and postoperative ultrasonographic investigation by an American College of Veterinary Radiology diplomate. Finally, the FHO limbs were grossly dissected, and abnormalities were documented. Results Gross visual damage was seen on all postoperative FHO limbs. The damage was most apparent in extreme external rotation of the limb at dissection. Yet, ultrasound investigation did not reveal changes associated with these gross lesions. Conclusion Iatrogenic inadvertent damage to the iliopsoas tendon may occur during routine FHO, as demonstrated in this ex vivo model; however, this result is not evidence for clinical relevance. A prospective clinical study is needed to assess if iliopsoas injury secondary to FHO has any clinical impact on recovery and limb function.

  • Pathologic Mandibular Fracture Associated with Bilateral Dentigerous Cysts
           in a Dog

    • Authors: Jones; Rebecca Lauren, Gauthier, Olivier, Vallefuoco, Rosario
      Abstract: This report describes the management and computed tomographic (CT) follow-up of a pathologic fracture of the mandibular body associated with bilateral dentigerous cysts in a 16-month-old Boxer. Bilateral, rostral, mandibular lesions consistent with dentigerous cysts were identified by intraoral radiography and CT. The left cyst was associated with an open, mildly displaced mandibular fracture. Treatment of the cystic lesions consisted of surgical exposure, extraction of embedded teeth, curettage of the cyst lining, and placement of demineralized bone matrix. Reduction and stabilization of the fracture were achieved by interdental wiring combined with an intraoral splint. Follow-up examination and CT imaging were performed at 8, 18, and 85 weeks postoperatively. Complete fracture healing and resolution of both cystic lesions were confirmed at 18 weeks with no recurrence evident at 85 weeks. No complications were encountered. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first case report of a pathologic mandibular fracture secondary to a dentigerous cyst in a dog, documenting the healing of dentigerous cysts via CT with progressive replacement of demineralized bone matrix by new osseous growth. Surgical treatment of the pathologic mandibular fracture and the bilateral dentigerous cysts resulted in an excellent clinical outcome.

  • Type II Monteggia Lesion with Complete Elbow Dislocation in a Cat

    • Authors: Schreiber; Kevin, Rousseau, Thomas, Gauthier, Olivier
      Abstract: A 2-year-old neutered male cat was presented for right forelimb non-weight-bearing lameness. A fracture of the proximal third of the ulna (associated with a caudal radio-humeral and humero-ulnar dislocations and a radio-ulnar dislocation) was radiographically identified, leading to a diagnosis of type II Monteggia lesion with complete elbow joint dislocation. The ulnar fracture was reduced and stabilized using an intramedullary pin. During surgery, the lateral collateral ligament and the annular ligament appeared disrupted. The radio-ulnar dislocation was reduced and stabilized, using a double-loop suture prosthesis passing through the metaphysis of the ulna and around the radial head. The radio-humeral dislocation was reduced and stabilized using a lateral collateral suture prosthesis. No postoperative complications were observed and the patient regained good elbow joint range of motion, with no significant lameness at 8 postoperative months.

  • Osseous Metaplasia of the Transverse Humeral Ligament in a 10-Year-Old
           Bengal Cat

    • Authors: Rodiño Tilve; Verónica, Maddox, Thomas, Ressel, Lorenzo, Pettitt, Rob
      Abstract: This report is of an osseous metaplasia of the transverse humeral ligament and secondary bicipital tenosynovitis in a 10-year-old Bengal cat. Computed tomography revealed the presence of an osseous bridge enclosing the bicipital groove, with ultrasonography confirming partial tear and inflammation of the bicipital tendon. Initial conservative management with intra-articular long-acting steroids failed to provide long-term improvement of clinical signs. Surgical excision of the osseous lesion resulted in complete resolution of lameness after surgery, confirmed by a 1-year follow-up. Histopathology of this lesion confirmed a well-differentiated osseous metaplasia of the transverse humeral ligament.

  • Knee Joint Distraction in a Dog as Treatment for Severe Osteoarthritis

    • Authors: Teunissen; Michelle, Mastbergen, Simon C., Spoelman, Dennis C., Lafeber, Floris P., Ludwig, Irene S., Broere, Femke, Tryfonidou, Marianna A., Meij, Björn P.
      Abstract: Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disease diagnosed in veterinary practice. There is no cure; where conservative treatment fails, a joint prosthesis is the last resort. In human OA patients, temporary distraction is a joint-preserving treatment which provides clinical and structural benefits, and postpones the need for total knee replacement for up to 9 years. In this single case, feasibility of knee joint distraction (KJD) was assessed in a 9-year-old female Dobermann with severe OA. Osteoarthritis of the left stifle joint was diagnosed clinically and radiographically. Knee joint distraction was applied for 7 weeks using a custom-made, hinged, external fixator. Follow-up of 1 year included owner questionnaires, orthopaedic examination, radiography, and force plate analysis. Additionally, synovial fluid biomarkers were assessed. Application and removal of the KJD frame were successfully accomplished without surgical complications. During KJD, the dog tolerated the frame well and maintained the use of the left hindlimb. Mild pin tract infection developed during the distraction period, which responded well to oral antibiotic medications. Owners reported clinical improvement during KJD and the follow-up period. This was confirmed by force plate analysis, demonstrating improvement from 3 months and onward. KJD proved to be a feasible strategy to treat end-stage OA in this single case; clinical efficacy remains to be determined in a larger cohort.

  • Deep Digital Flexor Contracture following Combined Tibial Plateau
           Levelling Osteotomy and Cranial Closing Wedge Ostectomy: A Case Report in
           a Dog

    • Authors: Price; Anya, Lopez, Daniel, Valenzano, Dominick, Frye, Christopher, Krotscheck, Ursula
      Abstract: This case report describes the use of a Z-plasty tenotomy and anastomosis to surgically lengthen the deep digital flexor (DDF) tendons of digits 2 to 5 of the pelvic limb in a 6-year-old male castrated Greyhound. The procedure was used to treat contracture of this tendon complex which developed after a series of complications secondary to proximal osteotomies utilized for the treatment of cranial cruciate ligament rupture. The dog was evaluated for lameness associated with left cranial cruciate ligament rupture and excessive tibial plateau slope; accordingly, a combined tibial plateau levelling osteotomy and cranial closing wedge ostectomy was performed. Postoperatively, the dog developed substantial DDF tendon contracture that led to severe digital hyperflexion and contributed to a non-weight bearing lameness. The dog received intensive rehabilitation therapy but failed to substantially improve; therefore, all of the weight-bearing left hindlimb DDF tendons were lengthened with a Z-plasty tenotomy and anastomosis followed by further rehabilitation. Follow-up evaluation 44 months postoperatively documented mild, intermittent left hindlimb lameness on gait observation and confirmed success of the Z-plasty procedure via ultrasonographic evaluation. Conservative treatment alone was unsuccessful in managing DDF tendon contracture in this dog. Z-plasty tenotomy and anastomosis of the DDF tendon allowed for return-to-acceptable function in this case.

  • Surgical Treatment of Congenital Radial Head Luxation in a Cat by
           Ostectomy of Radial Head

    • Authors: Verdese; Pauline, Manfredini, Sara, Formaggini, Luca
      Abstract: Congenital radial head luxation was diagnosed in a 7-month-old, neutered female cat that presented a right forelimb lameness. Clinical and radiographic examination revealed a caudolateral luxation of the right radial head, which was treated by radial head ostectomy. For months, postoperative radiographic recheck documented remodelling of the radial head, without humero-radial conflict, and clinical examination revealed resolution of lameness and restoring of the normal elbow range of motion. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first case report of a congenital radial head luxation in a caudolateral direction in a cat that was successfully managed surgically with radial head ostectomy.
