AbstractFull Text

Deep digital flexor (DDF) tenotomy is a technique employed for years to treat selected disorders of the musculoskeletal system in horses. Although two different surgical approaches (i.e. mid-metacarpal and pastern) have been described for performing the procedure, in vitro quantitative data...

Abstract

Nine horses presenting flexural deformity were submitted to deep digital flexor tenotomy near the insertion of the distal check ligament. Five animals presented flexural deformity in the distal interphalangeal joint of the deep digital flexor tendon and were submitted to a deep digital flexor ...

Abstract

Flexural deformity in growing animals is a condition in which a joint is kept in a flexed or abnormally extended position. In foals, it is characterised mainly by deviation of the limbs. As such, the aim is to report a case of flexural deformity in a pelvic limb of Quarter Horse. The animal was...

AbstractFull Text

Flexural deformities are usually found in foals at birth or develop in the first two years of life but may be acquired at any age. They can be uni- and bilateral and generally are produced as flexural deformities of the distal interphalangeal and metacarpophalangeal joints. The related causes are...

AbstractFull Text

A modified standing deep digital flexor (DDF) tenotomy at the level of the proximal interphalangeal joint is an effective treatment option for horses with refractory acute or chronic laminitis. Performing the tenotomy at this level increases the release of the tendon compared with the effect of...

Abstract

Deep digital flexor tenotomy is becoming increasingly popular as part of the treatment regimen for laminitis. The rationale for performing a tenotomy is based on the severity of the rotation of the third phalanx (coffin bone) in chronic laminitis cases with the goal of realigning the coffin bone...

Abstract

Medical records of 35 horses with chronic laminitis treated by deep digital flexor (DDF) tenotomy at the Texas Veterinary Medical Center were reviewed. Information was also obtained by follow-up telephone interviews with owners and referring veterinarians. 27 of the 35 (77%) horses survived ≥6...

Abstract

Transection of the deep digital flexor tendon is a controversial treatment for chronic laminitis largely because of the variation in personal experience with the procedure and the varying success rates reported in the previously published data. Differences in reported success rates are more likely...
