Treatment of traumatic triceps tendon avulsion in a cat
Not a very common scenario, the avulsion of the triceps tendon in a young cat. But which kind of surgery can be recommended? A succesful and interesting case report from Vienna.

Traumatic avulsion of the triceps tendon was diagnosed in a 15-month-old, male, neutered European shorthair cat.

Diagnosis was established clinically by palpation of a transverse groove proximal to the olecranon and by radiography.

The avulsed end of the tendon was surgically reapposed using a modified three-loop pulley suture and horizontal mattress sutures.

Postoperatively, elbow flexion was limited for three weeks with the aid of a spica splint and by exercise restriction for six weeks.

The cat showed no lameness after bandage removal up to the time of writing (seven months).

Although rare, triceps tendon injuries can occur after a blunt trauma and should be included in the differential diagnosis of foreleg lameness in the cat.

The modified three-loop pulley suture in combination with subsequent immobilisation of the limb with a splinted bandage resulted in a successful outcome in this cat with a triceps tendon avulsion.

Fluorescein sodium-guided resection of intracranial lesions in dogs
Twenty-two dogs with intracranial lesions were enrolled in this prospective case series. The objectives were to evaluate the safety of an intraoperative fluorescein sodium (FS) injection and elucidate the relationships between the MRI findings, pathological diagnoses, and intraoperative staining characteristics of intracranial lesions in 22 dogs.
