Long bone fracture constitutes a common reason for medical consultation within veterinary orthopaedic services. Owing to the specificities of the veterinary field, post-operative complications after a fracture osteosynthesis are usually more numerous than those in human medicine, and therefore, there is a need to better understand which orthopaedic device(s) should be preferred for a given fracture. The interest of subjectspecific finite element (FE) simulations in the understanding of long bone mechanics has been largely emphasised (Helgason et al. 2008; Schileo et al. 2008). However, available studies are often limited by the many assumptions made throughout the procedure of creating a validated subject-specific FE model of a long bone, including geometry acquisition and modelling, assignment of realistic material properties and accurate validation of FE results based on ex vivo experiments. Particularly, fracture prediction has often been limited to the fracture onset prediction based on arbitrary criteria. Based on these previous studies, the objective of the present contribution is to propose and compare different subject-specific FE models of long bones that could accurately predict long bone response and failure.

Humeral condylar fractures are common in dogs. Different types of fractures (lateral, medial, bicondylar) may occur, depending on the age of the dog and the position of its elbow during the impact. The goal of this work is to understand the effects of bone posture and skeletal development on canine humeral fractures by means of the finite element method. Four distinct finite element simulations were performed, corresponding to an immature and a mature dog elbow, respectively in extension and flexion. To create the finite element models, subject-specific finite element meshes were extracted from the CT-data. Appropriate material properties were used for cortical bone, trabecular bone and cartilage. The modified Mohr-Coulomb failure criterion was implemented to take account for strength asymmetry. Lateral humeral fractures are obtained for both the young and adult dog elbow, in extension and flexion. This is in agreement with clinical observations, in which lateral condylar fractures are most common. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the levels of plasmatic and synovial Coll2-1, Coll2-1NO(2) and myeloperoxidase (MPO) in horses with osteochondral lesions of the tarsocrural joint and to investigate how these levels relate to arthroscopic findings of inflammation and degeneration. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Venous blood and synovial fluid samples were collected from 63 horses presented for arthroscopic removal of osteochondral fragments in the tarsocrural joint. Prior to removal of the osteochondral fragment, an exploration of the joint was performed and an inflammatory and degenerative score was determined. The blood and synovial levels of Coll2-1, Coll2-1NO(2) and MPO were also measured. The effects of the arthroscopic evaluation (inflammatory and degenerative classes) on the blood and synovial markers were evaluated using a linear model (GLM procedure), and correlations between biochemical markers in the blood and synovial fluid and the arthroscopic evaluation (inflammatory and degenerative classes) were established (Pearson's correlations). RESULTS: Significantly higher levels of Coll2-1 were detected in synovial fluid of higher degenerative classes. There was a significant correlation between the degenerative score and the synovial levels of Coll2-1 (r=0.27). According to the logistic regression model, there was a significant effect of the degenerative class on synovial levels of Coll2-1. CONCLUSIONS: Coll2-1 correlates well with the degenerative state of tarsocrural joints as evaluated by arthroscopy. This marker can therefore be classified as a burden-of-disease marker in the assessment of joint disease in horses. [less ▲]

Physical injury or pathological changes such as removal of a tumor can result in large bone defects, preventing the recovery of its original function. Autogenous bone grafting, which is the most common technique for bone defect repairing, is associated with serious limitations, e.g. limited supply and donor site morbidity. Since a few years bone tissue engineering by degradable biomaterials has been shown as a very promising avenue for providing bone substitutes. Among these materials, bioresorbable synthetic polymers such as poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO), poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA), poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) and poly(lactic acid) (PLA) are very appealing because their chemistry and properties are controllable and reproducible. Cellular activity and proliferation of osteosarcoma cell lines (MG-63) on films were determined by the tetrazolium salt MTT assay and by phase contrast/fluorescence microscope observations. The cytotoxicity of the materials was found to be low or negligible. Cells viability variations were observed on the surface of the films. Long-term cell culture and degradability of PLA-PEOpolymer film was investigated by optical microscopy (Giemsa staining) and environmental scanning electron microscopy (ESEM). Hydrolysis of the PLLA ester linkages led to slow film degradation. After 113 days, optical microscope observations revealed the presence of large cracks on the surface, and even breaks of small polymer fragments, while MG-63 proliferation was still very important, showing a tissue-like aspect, with extracellular matrix (ECM) deposition. These results show that PLA-PEO copolymers are very interesting bioresorbable materials for long-term bone tissue engineering applications. [less ▲]

X-ray microtomography coupled with image analysis was tested as a non-destructive alternative method for the textural characterization of the trabecular part of deer antlers (Cervus Elaphus). As gas adsorption and mercury intrusion cannot be applied on this soft and spongy material, its pore texture was, up to now, determined from histological sections that give only two-dimensional information. In this work, X-ray microtomography is used to scan entire or half pieces of antlers and three-dimensional image analysis is performed in order to assess the differences between samples collected at various antler locations. Results clearly show a porosity profile along the sample diameter. The pore size distribution is showed to be dependent on the sample original site. [less ▲]
