Abstract

The Leeds-Keio synthetic replacement for the canine cranial cruciate ligament was implanted in eight dogs. All eight dogs developed progressive instability and secondary degenerative joint disease over a period of three months after the operation. It was concluded that the Leeds-Keio ligament, as implanted in this study, is not satisfactory for use in dogs.
