More information on elbow dysplasia

The elbow joint is a hinge-joint between the humerus(a) on one side and the radius (b) and the ulna (c) on the other side. The areas of bone, which form the actual joint, are covered with cartilage. The space between the surfaces of the joints is filled with a lubricant (Synovia) which plays a role in feeding the cartilage.
d. Processus Anconeus, orange part (PA, = part of the elbow joint)
e. Processus Coronoideus, green part, (PC, = part of the elbow joint)

Elbow dysplasia is a collective noun for next conditions:

OCD (Osteochondrosis Dissecans)
LPA (Los Processus Anconeus)
LPC (Los Processus Coronoideus)


ocd This type occurs mainly in bigger, fast growing breeds with pups between four and twelve months of age. OCD is a disease of the cartilage of the joint, usually accompanied with inflammation of the bone underneath. The symptoms are a slowly increased limping, shortening of the length of steps forward, development of getting cripple, the step forwards is getting shorter, overburdening of the joint and turning the leg outward.

Under a microscope the damage is even clearer. Itís easy to spot the damages under a microscope. The cartilage layer is the darker layer on top: it is clear that some of the cartilage is broken. Marked red is the clearly visible inflammation of the bone.

LPA (orange part of elbow joint)

This occurs mostly in larger breeds, although nowadays, it is also seen in the Dachshund and Bassets.
During ossification the cartilage degenerates, due to a abnormal growth process. The Processus Anconeus will not develop properly and will break off. Most of the time, the loose piece of bone was removed by a vet, but nowadays that is not common practice anymore. When removing part of the joint, the body will react by ďfilling inĒ that part again thus causing bone deformation. This is a painful an irreversible process. Nowadays, instead of an operation, one chooses to let the joint develop as best as possible, with the aid of natural formulas.

LPC (green part of elbow joint)

Same as LPA.
