ABSTRACT
The article presents a study which investigates the incidence of infection and premature crimp failure after repair of cranial cruciate ligament-deficient stifles in 110 dogs. Researchers have observed 110 cases of stifle stabilization which uses the crimp clamp method. Results reveal that implanting thick monofilament nylon has a higher risk of infection than the general surgical risk and that the use of two crimps instead of one may reduce the incidence of crimp slippage.
