TPLO´s in dogs with bilaterally ruptured cruciate ligaments
TPLO´s are commonly performed to treat ruptured cruciate ligaments in dogs. Especially in great breeds ruptured cruciated ligaments tend to occur bilateral. How are the results and the function when this procedure is done on both sides?

The records of 25 dogs with bilaterally ruptured cranial cruciate ligaments (CrCL) treated with single-session bilateral tibial plateau leveling osteotomies (TPLOs) were reviewed.

The mean age and body weight at presentation were 4.9 years and 36.1 kg, respectively. Minor complications occurred in five dogs. Good or excellent function occurred in 19 of 25 dogs at a mean of 6.9 weeks postoperatively.

Owner evaluation revealed that the 88% of dogs had good or excellent function at an average of 14.3 months postoperatively.

This study demonstrated that single-session bilateral TPLOs are an effective treatment for bilaterally ruptured CrCLs with minimal morbidity and complications.

Long-term outcome of dogs with primary immune-mediated thrombocytopeniamembers
Primary immune‐mediated thrombocytopenia (IMTP) is a life-threatening condition which is occasionally seen in dogs. Also many of them respond to intensive therapy, the incidence of relapse may be underestimated. The objectives of this new study were to determine the incidence of relapse after discharge from the hospital in dogs with a diagnosis of presumed primary immune‐mediated thrombocytopenia, risk factors associated with relapse and whether or not indefinite use of immunosuppressive medication influences risk of relapse.
