Long-term follow-up after coronoidectomy in dogs
A fragmented Processus coronoideus medialis is a common problem especially in large and giant dog breeds. If the problem is not diagnosed and corrected early one has to expect severe chronic-degenerative alterations of the elbow joint. But how likely is the progression of arthrosis postsurgical? As this study shows, 70% of them showed still a progressive arthrosis in their X-rays without clinical lameness. Now the authors are waiting for long-term results...

A retrospective study was performed describing the clinical presentations, radiographic findings, and surgical outcomes of 17 dogs (18 elbows) following medial coronoidectomy for the treatment of elbow joint incongruity as a sole disease entity.

Complete resolution of lameness was achieved in 100% of the cases.
The mean radiographic arthrosis grade progressed in 70% of the cases.

Results of this study indicate that resolution of clinical lameness may be achieved with medial coronoidectomy in dogs with elbow incongruity; however, progression of degenerative joint disease with unknown, long-term clinical significance can be expected after surgery.

Shock index in identifying acute blood loss in healthy dogs
Does the shock index (SI) increase following blood donation and is it a more sensitive assessment of acute blood loss as heart rate (HR), blood pressure, and plasma Lactate? An interesting question! 20 client-owned clinically normal dogs were enrolled in this prospective study.
