Meet Scuba!

Scuba is an 8-yr old Potcake (Caribbean street dog)

Eight months following his Spryng™ with OsteoCushion™ Technology injection, Scuba has a barely noticeable limp only upon rising and you would never guess that he still has a partially ruptured cranial cruciate ligament.

CONDITION

Right hind limb grade 2-3/5 lameness of nearly 12 months duration with associated muscle atrophy from decreased use. Diagnosed as unilateral partially ruptured cranial cruciate ligament. Also undergoing chemotherapy for hypercalcemic mediastinal T cell lymphoma.


TREATMENT

Scuba was placed under heavy sedation. His right stifle was clipped and surgically prepared in a routine fashion. A 22g 1 inch needle was placed in a lateral to medial direction to penetrate the synovial space while avoiding the patellar ligament. A small amount of joint fluid was removed (0.4 mL) then the syringe was changed to inject 1.4 mL of sterile Spryng™ with OsteoCushion™ Technology into the joint. After removing the needle and applying compression to the injection site, the stifle was flexed and extended to disperse the particles in the joint. Scuba recovered uneventfully and was discharged to his person several hours later.


RESULTS

There were no issues post intra-articular injection and Scuba’s condition initially remained stable. Over the following 2-3 weeks, Scuba started to eat better and his lameness improved — progressing from a grade 3 to a grade 1 lameness. He was able to return to his favorite activities, such as running around the yard, chasing his companion dog and tossing his toys. His lameness continued to improve and now is rarely even noticeable. Scuba was discontinued off all pain meds, including the chronic NSAID.
