01718-A: Preventing Osteoarthritis after Elbow Dysplasia Surgery
Grant Status: Closed
Project SummaryThis grant tested the efficacy of a new bone plate on relieving pressure within the elbow joint of dogs. This is the first step in determining whether or not this plate is effective in relieving the pressure within the elbow in dogs with elbow arthritis. We tested both normal and incongruent joints ex vivo. Analysis of our data shows that this plate may relieve the pressure within the elbow of dogs with an incongruity, whereas no significant changes were noted within the normal elbows. Studies in clinically affected dogs are indicated.
