Stem cell therapy and cell-based therapies using other progenitor cells are becoming the treatment of choice for many equine orthopedic lesions. Important criteria for obtaining autogenous equine progenitor cells in vitro for use in clinical cell-based therapy include the ability to isolate and expa...

Sacral fractures in 2 dairy cattle were repaired surgically for cosmetic reasons. A heifer had a Salter-Harris type-I fracture of the fifth sacral vertebra, which was repaired with a 4.5-mm narrow dynamic compression plate. A cow had complete fracture of the fourth sacral body, which was repaired wi...

OBJECTIVE: To determine a range of limb loading activity for healthy adult horses confined to box stalls in an equine veterinary teaching hospital and determine the effects of hospital environmental factors on load rates and daily limb loading patterns. ANIMALS: 6 mature healthy horses of various ag...

Enterolithiasis, as a cause of colic, was diagnosed and treated during surgical intervention in 2 Grant's zebras (Equus burchelli bohmi). The zebras were part of a wild herd in a zoo in the western United States. The clinical signs of enterolithiasis in both zebras were similar to those reported for...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the mechanical properties of Equine Interlocking Nail (EIN; JD Wheat Veterinary Orthopedic Research Laboratory, University of California, Davis) stabilized osteotomized tibiae and compare these variables with estimated in vivo loads. STUDY DESIGN: In vitro biomechanical inves...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the osteogenic potential of cancellous bone of conventional graft sites with that of one nonconventional site (fourth coccygeal vertebra) and to investigate the tibial periosteum as a donor site with respect to osteogenic potential. STUDY DESIGN: In vitro osteogenic cell cultur...
