Abstract

Objective: To develop a tenoscopic approach for desmotomy of the accessory ligament of the deep digital flexor tendon (AL-DDFT) in horses. Study Design: Experimental. Animals: Cadaveric forelimbs (n=10) and 4 forelimbs from 2 horses anesthetized for terminal teaching procedures, and 12 forelimbs of ...

Abstract

Effective treatments for horses diagnosed with severe deep digital flexor (DDF) tendinopathy are limited. In this study, three Quarter Horses diagnosed with severe bilateral DDF tendinopathy underwent bilateral desmotomy of the accessory ligament of the DDF tendon after failing to respond to...

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 ...

Abstract

Objective: To compare intra and postoperative clinical features of desmotomy of the accessory ligament of the superficial digital flexor tendon (ALSDFT) using the Saber radiofrequency (SaberRF) electrosurgical probe versus sharp transection with a tenotomy knife. Study Design: Randomized,...

Abstract

Objective: Determine the long-term outcome for Thoroughbreds undergoing desmotomy of the accessory ligament of the deep digital flexor tendon (DAL-DDFT) for type 1 flexural deformity of the distal interphalangeal joint (DIPJ). Design: Retrospective matched cohort study. Procedure: Medical records...

Abstract

An analysis of joint moments was used to study the biomechanics, load redistribution and kinematic pattern before and after desmotomy of the accessory ligament of the deep digital flexor tendon (AL) in 6 healthy Standardbred horses of between 3 and 25 years of age. Kinematic recordings of the right ...

Abstract

Mature horses that present with flexural deformity of the distal interphalangeal joint and lameness isolated to the foot may obtain long-term benefits from desmotomy of the accessory ligament of the deep digital flexor tendon (ALDDFT). This retrospective analysis of medical records and radiographs...

Abstract

Objective: To measure the effects of transection of the accessory ligament of the superficial digital flexor (SDF) muscle (superior check desmotomy) on flexor tendon and suspensory ligament (SL) strain in vitro. Study Design: In vitro experimental biomechanical investigation. Animals Used: Ten...

Abstract

Healing of the accessory ligament of the deep digital flexor tendon following desmotomy was evaluated using 5 healthy Standardbred trotters. Gross appearance, length, cross-sectional area (CSA), in vitro material properties, and ultrasonographic and histomorphologic features were studied 6 months...
