Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 7 yr old spayed female Chihuahua presented for right hind limb lameness and reduced stifle range of motion. Radiographs showed a marked patella baja of the right stifle and evidence of a previous surgery to correct a medial patellar luxation. A tibial tuberosity osteotomy was performed to allow proximal translation of the tibial tuberosity, which was stabilized with a tibial tuberosity advancement plate. Four weeks postoperatively, lameness and articular range of motion were improved, and the use of anti-inflammatory and analgesic medications was discontinued. The dog was still ambulating well and had no lameness 12 mo postsurgically.
