Abstract

Reasons for performing study: Annular ligament desmotomy is commonly performed in horses with chronic tenosynovitis. Previously reported tenoscopic techniques have limitations related to haemorrhage and awkward instrumentation. Radiofrequency (RF) energy affords precision and excellent haemostasis...

Abstract

Proximal digital annular ligament (PDAL) desmitis occurs in horses for which PDAL desmotomy is the only reported treatment. The presented work aims to develop a technique for safely performing PDAL desmotomy in horses. Twenty hind limbs and 13 forelimbs, harvested from horses dead or euthanized for ...

Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate the use of AM surgical instrumentation for annular desmotomy in horses. Five female, mature horses (2-7-years-old) were used to evaluate the effectiveness of AM surgical instrumentation. The instrumentation consisted of a slotted cannula, conical obturator for...

Abstract

An endoscopically assisted technique for internally dividing the palmar annular ligament was developed in 6 cadaver limb specimens and 2 anaesthetized horses. Under arthroscopic view, a slotted cannula was inserted into the digital sheath through a stab wound proximal to the annular ligament and...

Abstract

A modified open annular ligament desmotomy followed by passive open drainage was used to treat 12 horses with chronic digital septic tenosynovitis due to trauma in the form of open wounds or self-sealing punctures. The surgical approach included complete transection of the palmar/plantar annular ...
