GUY, P  e  LE ROUX, C. Impaired endochondral ossification in a skeletally immature dog: implications for femoral cleft formation and suspected incomplete femoral ossification. J. S. Afr. Vet. Assoc. [online]. 2024, vol.95, n.1, pp.12-15. ISSN 2224-9435.

Historically, knowledge regarding congenital skeletal malformations in canines is poor. The Nomina Embryologica Veterinaria does not currently list any dysmorphia related to distal femoral fusion, and there is a significant absence of comprehensive descriptions of congenital defects in the veterinary literature. This paper reports on the radiographic and computed tomography (CT) characteristics of a skeletal abnormality in a seven-month-old crossbreed dog that presented for chronic right pelvic limb lameness as a result of secondary developmental patella luxation. Successful resolution of the lameness was achieved through concurrent surgical correction of the patella luxation and distal femoral cleft.

Palavras-chave : patella luxation; femoral malformation; stifle; congenital; diagnostics; dog; imaging; skeletal.
