Patellar groove prosthesis

Patellar groove prosthesis

Planning the operation of a cruciate ligament rupture and patella alta

Dr Seregi at FuzioVet sent this case to us. Woody is a Yorkshire terrier who had two problems in his right stifle joint: a rupture of the cranial cruciate ligament and a medial (inward) patellar luxation. The latter was greatly due to the fact that the patella could easily slip out of its groove. So, after consulting with Dr Seregi, we agreed that these two deformations would be treated during one operation. The rupture of the cranial cruciate ligament was remedied with the method TPLO (tibial plateau leveling osteotomy) which promotes the biomechanical stability of the knee - here the doctor used standard surgical implants. However, repairing the patellar groove necessitated a customised implant. Hence, as a first step, we reconstructed the bones based on the CT inspection. Then, we designed an implant which perfectly fits the bone surfaces (considering all of the relevant osseous morphology) and which prevents possible luxations in the future. The operation was successful and Woody started to use his operated leg soon.

Neurological problems and innovations in their treatment - Interview with Dr László Lehner, DVM (Part 1)

If you experience sudden muscle twitches or movement problems in your cat or dog, it can immediately scare you. Fortunately, however, small animal neurology is continuously developing which is greatly supported by our developments as well.  In this episode of our interview series we are talking to Dr László Lehner, a veterinarian specialised in small animal neurology, who carries out numerous operations regarded as unique in Hungary, e.g. removing...

The TROCA 55 trochlear cap system - Customised trochlear cap by LimesVet

One of the most frequent orthopaedic deformation in small dogs is the dislocation of the patella. Patellar luxation is often a congenital, inherited disorder but it can also be caused by a trauma or an accident. With the help of 3D design and printing, we have created an implant which is considered exceptional worldwide. It is uniquely designed and manufactured for the femur of the given animal. We deliver this product together with anatomical models...
