Abstract

Desmotomy of the accessory ligament (AL) of the deep digital flexor tendon (DDFT) of forelimbs was performed on 6 healthy Standardbred trotters to determine whether this procedure is a viable treatment for chronic desmitis of the AL-DDFT. Biomechanical recordings obtained before and 6 months after...
