Development of a novel endoprosthesis for canine limb-sparing using a finite element approach
Osteosarcoma is the most prevalent bone tumor in the canine population and the distal radius is the most commonly affected site. To date, amputation has been the preferred treatment option among veterinarians for distal radius osteosarcoma. However, with the advent of better chemotherapy protocols and the subsequent increasing survival rates, interest has now turned towards saving the legs of dogs with osteosarcoma. The current endoprosthesis used for limb-sparing is associated with a high failure rate, and hence, the design of a novel endoprosthesis is warranted. To aid in the development of ...
