A retrospective study of 62 dogs that underwent unilateral triple pelvic osteotomy with a Slocum triple pelvic osteotomy plate and Synthes 3.5 mm cortical screws. We compared the probability of screw loosening after six weeks in dogs in which pre-tapped screws were used (30 dogs), with dogs in which self-tapping screws were used (32 dogs). Screw loosening was significantly less prevalent with self-tapping screws than pretapped screws. © Schattauer 2010.

Triple pelvic osteotomy (TPO) was used to treat a selected group of young dogs with clinical and radiographic signs of hip dysplasia. Good clinical outcomes have been reported in dogs between 17-85 kg body weight. Hip dysplasia however is also en-countered in smaller dogs. If surgery is performed in smaller dogs, femoral head and neck ostectomy is the main treatment method used. We wanted to determine if TPO could also be used in dogs under 12 kg bodyweight. Our study showed that it is technically possible to perform TPO surgery in dogs less than 12 kg of weight (down to 4.6 kg) with a good clinical outcome even in hips with high angles of reduction and subluxation. © Schattauer 2010.
