At necropsy, severe osteoarthritis was evident in the coxofemoral
joints bilaterally, but no other abnormalities were observed in the gonadal tissue or pectoral skeletal musculature and the deslorelin implants were not found.
Coffee has a coxofemoral
(hip) joint luxation that can only be corrected by surgery.
Pelvis X-ray showed a normal femoral head and coxofemoral
joint and a bony spur starting from the lateral corner of the right acetabulum and lying toward the anterior part of the hip joint, which was consistent with pelvic digit (Figure 4).
2]-weighted and STIR sequences in the coxofemoral
joints exceeding 5 mm in thickness was noted as a pathologically increased fluid collection in the hip joints.
Substituição do ligamento da cabeça do fêmur com auto-enxerto de fáscia lata na luxação coxofemoral
However, 5 months before her hospital admission, the patient had received a coxofemoral
arthroprosthesis as a result of a fall and had since complained of generalized bone pain and had remained bedridden.
The cervical vertebrae and caudal synsacrum appeared well aligned: however, the midvertebral column showed prominent scoliosis (Fig 3) and marked coxofemoral
On survey radiographs, abnormalities were a healed, malunion fracture of the left tibiotarsal bone, chronic left stifle and coxofemoral
luxation, bony remodeling of the left coracoid bone consistent with previous trauma, medullary hyperostosis of the right tibiotarsal bone, and a rounded liver.
Four days after admission, crepitus during left hip manipulation persisted, which prompted further radiographic evaluation of the coxofemoral joint.
A standard lateral approach to the avian coxofemoral joint was used.
Only lateral and ventrodorsal views that met criteria for symmetrical positioning were examined: for the ventrodorsal views, the carina and the vertebral spine were superimposed and wings were symmetrical; for the lateral views, both coxofemoral
joints were overlapped and the wings were superimposed.
joint motion was normal bilaterally, but the left tarsal joint was flaccid and the digits were held flexed.
