Comparison of outcome in dogs undergoing single ‐incision laparoscopic‐assisted intestinal surgery and open laparotomy for simple small intestinal foreign body removal
ConclusionSingle ‐incision laparoscopic‐assisted intestinal surgery for foreign body removal was not significantly different from OL in a variety of outcome measures in this cohort of dogs. Diagnostic imaging including ultrasonography or computed tomography may improve appropriate case selection for SILAIS for s imple foreign body removal.Clinical significanceSingle ‐incision laparoscopic‐assisted intestinal surgery offers a minimally invasive technique for simple small intestinal foreign body removal. Additional study is required to compare SILAIS with OL. (Source: Veterinary Surgery)

Cardiorespiratory effects of variable pressure thoracic insufflation in cats undergoing video ‐assisted thoracic surgery
ConclusionCO2 insufflation to 5  mm Hg seems well tolerated in healthy cats, provided ventilatory settings are substantially increased as ITP increases.Clinical significanceThoracic CO2 insufflation of 3  mm Hg in cats during video‐assisted thoracic surgery is associated with less hemodynamic perturbation than 5 mm Hg insufflation and may provide the benefit of improved working space compared with baseline.

Biomechanical properties of plate constructs for feline ilial fracture gap stabilization
AbstractObjectiveTo determine the biomechanical properties of plating techniques for comminuted feline ilial fractures.Study designEx vivo study on 40 paired feline hemipelves.Sample populationForty paired fresh ‐frozen hemipelves that had been collected from 20 cats aged 2‐6 years and weighing 4.0‐5.5 kg.MethodsA transverse 3 ‐mm gap was created in each ilium. Hemipelves were fixed with one of the following methods (n = 10 per group): (1) a dorsal plate and nonlocking screws, (2) a lateral plate and nonlocking screws, (3) a lateral plate and locking screws, or (4) a lateral and dorsal locking ...

Effect of osteoarthritis on the repeatability of patella tendon angle measurement in dogs
ConclusionThe current study did not find evidence of an influence of osteoarthritis on PTA or on the repeatability of measurements.Clinical significanceOur findings suggest that osteoarthritis should not affect the radiographic planning for tibial tuberosity advancement surgery. The high variances in PTA measurement in less experienced observers may influence the clinical outcome of surgery. (Source: Veterinary Surgery)

Outcome following cosmetic rostral nasal reconstruction after planectomy in 26 dogs
ConclusionDehiscence was common after this procedure, but local tumor control and survival times were excellent. Owner satisfaction was high, although preoperative client education is vital.Clinical significanceThis technique should be considered as a viable option for dogs with nasal planum neoplasia given the high rate of recurrence with less aggressive treatment. Complications common following surgery, but do not persist long term and survival times were excellent. (Source: Veterinary Surgery)

Ex vivo cadaveric study of a laterally placed Leipzig stifle distractor for arthroscopic evaluation of the lateral meniscus in dogs
ConclusionLateral placement of an LSD proved to be safe and effective for the distraction of the lateral femorotibial joint space and the examination and treatment of the lateral meniscus in dogs weighing 18 ‐42 kg.Clinical significanceCanine lateral meniscus pathology, although rare, leads to severe pain. A laterally placed LSD improves arthroscopic evaluation and treatment of this pathology. (Source: Veterinary Surgery)

In vitro comparison of linear vs triangular screw configuration to stabilize complete uniarticular parasagittal fractures of the proximal phalanx in horses
AbstractObjectiveTo assess fracture gap reduction and stability of linear vs triangular 4.5 ‐mm lag screw repair of experimental, uniarticular, and complete forelimb proximal phalanx (P1) fractures.Study designExperimental.Sample populationFourteen equine cadaver limbs/horses.MethodsSimulated fractures were repaired with 2 lag screws under 4 ‐Nm insertion torque (linear repair). Computed tomography (CT) imaging was performed with the leg unloaded and loaded to forces generated while walking. The fracture repair was revised to include 3 lag screws placed with the same insertion torque (triangular repair) prior to CT. Th...
