Abstract

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.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
