LAMAGUTI, Paulo et al. Femoral cupola osteotomy for correction of femoral neck inclination angle. Cienc. Rural [online]. 1996, vol.26, n.1, pp.153-157. ISSN 0103-8478.

Femoral cupola osteotomy was performed in a dog with a large femoral inclination angie and hip subluxation. Osteotomy owas performed 1 cm distal to the lesser trochanter from lateral to medial cortex. Immobilization was performed owith a Steinamnnpin drivenfrom the greater trochanter and through two boles drilled proximal and distal to the osteotomy line. The technique produced: 35° decrease on inclination angle, lowering of the femoral head, elevation of the greater trochanter, congruity of the hip and 3cm limb shortening. Consolidation occured 90 days after the surgery.

Keywords : dog; inclination angle; osteotomy.
