Abstract

Hindlimb proximal suspensory desmopathy (PSD) is a common cause of lameness or poor performance in horses and may occur alone or together with other suspensory ligament (SL) injuries in forelimbs or hindlimbs. The aims of this retrospective case-control study (January 2009 to December 2018) were to ...

Abstract

Objective: To evaluate the effects of a new microfracture and ligament splitting procedure on ligament healing and to examine the usefulness of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging for monitoring ligament healing over time using a collagenase model of hind limb proximal suspensory desmitis. Study...
