Abstract


Identification of locomotor changes induced by osteochondral lesions in the
femorotibial joint in dogs.Movement of the femorotibial joint in dogs with osteochondral
lesions showed a decreasing of both flexion and extension during the stance phase.
Coxofemoral joint was characterized by increased movement of the extension during the
stance phase, especially from the mid-stance to the end of stance phase. The obtained data for
Post-lesion dogs could be used for comparison with data obtained during/after the treatment
of osteochondral lesions, to assess the possibility of normal motion recovery.
