Compararam-se os achados musculotendinosos e osteoarticulares encontrados em cães com luxação patelar medial, por meio do exame ortopédico realizado com e sem anestesia geral. Para tal, foram utilizados 11 joelhos de 10 cães, sem distinção de sexo, idade e raça, os quais apresentaram luxação patelar medial dos graus II, III e IV, diagnosticada clinicamente. O exame ortopédico específico da articulação do joelho foi realizado previamente à cirurgia, com o animal sem anestesia, e, no dia da cirurgia, com o cão já anestesiado. Verificou-se, quanto aos achados osteoarticulares, que não houve diferenças. Já em relação aos achados musculotendinosos, houve diferença entre as avaliações do movimento de gaveta e dos músculos sartório e retofemoral.

This study aimed to compare the osteoarticular and musculotendineal findings in dogs with medial patellar luxation by orthopedic examination performed with and without general anesthesia. For this we used 11 knees of 10 dogs without distinction of sex, age and race, which had medial patellar luxation in grades II, III and IV, diagnosed clinically. The specific orthopedic examination of the knee joint was performed prior to surgery with the non-anaesthetised dog, and on the day of surgery with the same patient already anesthetized. Regarding the osteoarticular results, no differences were found. In relation to the musculotendineal results, differences were observed between the assessments of the drawer movement and sartorius and rectum femoral muscle tension.

Six surgical corrections were performed with techniques of bone and soft tissue reconstruction, according to the individual presentation of each patient, in four Toy breed dogs, which had grades III and IV luxation, two of them bilaterally operated. During the recovery excessive medial tension associated to the Sartorius muscle was detected, which motivated its release at the iliac insertion. The animals had a functional recovery of the limb after 15 days, and complications or loss of function related to the release of the Sartorius muscle were not observed even after six months. It is believed that the proximal disinsertion of this muscle can be necessary and effective in some patients as a complementary technique to release medial tension in dogs with grades III and IV medial patellar luxation.
