Case Study
The article presents a case study of coxofemoral luxation that occurred in a horse during its recovery from general anesthesia. This abnormality is not common in horses, but in case of its development the young foals or ponies will be the victims. This case report reveals an increase in testicular size and induration along with an inguinal hernia of the small intestine with abnormal penstalsis.

    Abstract  Asphericity of the femoral head-neck junction is one cause for femoroacetabular impingement of the hip. However, the asphericity often is underestimated on conventional radiographs. This study compares the presence of asphericity on conventional radiographs with its appearance on...

    In this article the authors discuss a systemic review on the use of primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) versus hemiarthroplasty to treat older patients with displaced intracapsular hip fractures. They point out that the evidence of the outcomes of the study demonstrates the superiority of THA...

    Background: Anteversion of an acetabular component often is difficult to ascertain in patients with THA in whom excessively anteverted or retroverted femurs may result in limited ROM or risk of dislocation. Restriction of motion, however, is determined by the combination of version of both...
