Canine lameness caused by developmental orthopedic diseases: Fragmented medial coronoid process and ununited anconeal process Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Fragmented medial coronold process and ununited anconeal process are common developmental orthopedic diseases that affect the cubital joint in immature large-breed dogs. Several factors, including genetics, nutrition, and diet, have been implicated in the pathogenesis of both diseases. Lameness and joint pain are common clinical signs and may develop as early as 4 months of age. Early diagnosis allows initiation of proper medical or surgical treatment and may minimize the progression of osteoarthritis.
