Title:Three-Dimensional Morphological Comparison of Feline Tibiae
Objectives: To investigate feline tibiae anatomy in order to determine how similar they are to one another, and evaluate the possibility to develop universal bone implants for i.e. fracture repair. Material and methods: CT scanning, coupled with 3D imaging are used on thirty-one cat tibiae. Measurements taken included tibial length, weight, proximal epiphysis circumference, smallest cortical circumference, smallest medullary area, angle between the malleolus and the cortex, angle between the proximal epiphysis and the cortex, valgus, tibial torsion and tibial plateau angle. 3D shape comparison between two sets of two bones was also undertaken.
