26-28) The findings in this case indicate that the tibiotarsal
osteosarcoma stained positive for osteocalcin and osteonectin.
Etymology: From Latin latus (broad), with reference to diagnostic tibiotarsal projection on gonopod.
Remarks: In Podochresimus capensis (Porat, 1893) one gonopod tibiotarsal branch is also shield-like and apically bilobed (Attems 1928, fig.
The first signs of pododermatitis, bilateral redness and smoothing of the epithelium on the plantar aspect of the feet, began 5 days before surgical stabilization of the left tibiotarsal fracture.
Epithelial damage that occurs secondary to asymmetric weight bearing on the metatarsal pad, in this case, potentially caused by the contralateral tibiotarsal fracture and repair, causes reduced circulation, microepithelial damage, local impairment of the immune system, and, ultimately, invasion of opportunistic pathogens.

A wide area overlying the pectoral and left tibiotarsal
region was aseptically pre pared for surgery.
It had previously been an apparently healthy bird aside from a historic fracture of the left tibiotarsal
bone and partial digit amputation of digits 2 and 4 of the left foot.
The stifle-joint angle was measured as the angle formed by the long axis of the femur (the line through the center of femoral diaphysis at the subtrochanteric level and the center of the lateral femoral condyle) and the long axis of the tibiotarsal
shaft (the line through the center of the tibial plateau and the tibiotarsal
