ABSTRACT Total joint replacement has evolved over the past 50 years from a concept that was first attempted in people suffering from osteoarthritis to a commonly applied practice in veterinary medicine. Although many questions have been answered, several controversies still exist, with many implant and technical options being explored. Currently, total hip and elbow replacement are commercially available options viable for use in dogs. These options are detailed in this article. Joint replacement for other canine joints (ie, knee, hock, shoulder) that develop osteoarthritis likely will be developed in the near future.

    ABSTRACT: In a memory system employing wide channel high-performance DRAMs, skews resulting from nonideal system and chip environments become the most critical factor. This 256 MB memory system achieves 256 Gb/s peak bandwidth with a 160 MHz clock and 64b channel using a ±0.4 V-swing, push-pull type I/O interface (SSTL)

    ABSTRACT: To report revision of cemented total hip arthroplasty failure with cementless components in 3 dogs. Clinical case reports. Dogs with total hip arthroplasty failure (n=3). Cementless total hip arthroplasty revision was performed in 3 dogs with previously cemented femoral and acetabular components. All dogs required revision of the femoral component and 1 dog also required revision of the acetabular component. Revisions resulted in a stable functional prosthesis with successful bone integration. Use of cementless components may be a viable option for revision of loosened cemented prosthesis after explantation of failed cemented canine total hip replacements. Failed canine-cemented total hip arthroplasties can be successfully revised with cementless components.

    ABSTRACT: To report repair of a periprosthetic acetabular fracture with concurrent component displacement after cementless total hip arthroplasty (THA). Clinical case report. Dog (n=1) with an acetabular fracture after THA. Acetabular repair was performed on a highly comminuted periprosthetic acetabular fracture after cementless THA. A bulk, structural corticocancellous autograft from the ipsilateral ilial wing was used for repair and reconstruction of the dorsal acetabular wall before reimplantation of a cementless acetabular component. Repair of a periprosthetic acetabular fracture with a bulk structural autograft was successful in reconstruction of the dorsal acetabular wall and in reestablishing a stable, functional cementless THA acetabular prosthesis. Structural corticocancellous autografts from the ilium can be successfully used in repair of periprosthetic acetabular fractures after THA. Structural corticocancellous grafting from the ilium can be considered as a treatment option for repair of periprosthetic acetabular fractures after THA.
