The coxofemoral joint is the most commonly luxated joint in small animal practice. Hip luxation accounts for 90% of luxations in cats and dogs. The most common cause is trauma – automobile or falling from a height. The extent of soft tissue damage varies and is significant prognostically.
We will look at physical examination and differentiating between the various types of luxation. Radiographic assessment is examined. We will then look at techniques for closed reduction. Closed reduction may be successful in approximately 50% of cases, though recurrence is common.
Open reduction may be necessary if closed reduction is unsuccessful. Many techniques are described. As with many surgical procedures the plethora of published techniques suggests that there is no single technique that will resolve all cases.
This lecture examines the more commonly used techniques and we make suggestions that may be useful in helping to avoid recurrence as well as long term osteoarthritis.
