Endoprosthesis (EN) in a frontlim-sparing surgery for distal radial tumours in the dog: Preliminary results


Venzin, C; Grundmann, S; Montavon, P M (2012). Endoprosthesis (EN) in a frontlim-sparing surgery for distal radial tumours in the dog: Preliminary results. Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 154(8):337-343.

Abstract

In veterinary medicine, limb-sparing techniques are most implemented when the uninvolved limbs are affected by other orthopaedic or neurological disorders, in large breeds or when the owner declines amputation. This report describes the surgical technique used for implantation of an endoprosthesis following tumour resection in the distal radius in 3 dogs using both standard and angle-stable plates. Endoprosthesis offers an easy and readily available surgical alternative to cortical allografts. Despite post-operative complications, this technique resulted in a good quality of life in all 3 dogs.

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.
