The tibial plateau angles (TPA) of dogs with andwithout cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) injuries wereevaluated and further compared to the TPAs of dogsfrom a previous population and of wolves. Similar TPAmeasurements were found in all groups, suggestingthat any possible changes in breeding practises,breed preferences, nutrition or other factors have notsignificantly influenced the TPA over time. Moreover,a difference was not found in the TPA between anygroup and the group affected with CrCL injury,suggesting that the TPA is not a clinically relevantpredisposing factor in the development of canine CrCLrupture.
