BRAGA, Carolina Silveira et al. Caudoventral hip luxation in a miniature pig. Cienc. Rural [online]. 2017, vol.47, n.7, e20160603.  Epub 22-Jun-2017. ISSN 1678-4596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0103-8478cr20160603.

A miniature pig was examined because of left pelvic limb lameness after falling from a short height. Clinical examination and radiographs of the pelvic region revealed a left caudoventral hip luxation. Surgical reduction of luxation was performed on the patient under general anesthesia using a transarticular pinning technique. Postoperative radiographs confirmed that the luxation was reduced, the joint was aligned, and the transarticular pinning was correct. The transarticular pin was removed 21 days after it was surgically inserted. The limb was fully functional in the immediate postoperative period. Nine months after the surgery, the patient could use the limb properly, but mild degenerative joint disease was observed via radiographic follow-up. This technique may be a viable treatment option for the repair of caudoventral hip luxation in miniature pigs.
