The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of patient positioning and slice selection on these angles, and an attempt was made to devise a repeatable method of measuring these angles that would eliminate positioning effects. We found significant variation in AAs with small differences in pelvic tilt and slice selection. Dorsal acetabular rim angles were not affected. As a result of positioning differences from one CT study to the next, every attempt should be made to standardize pelvic tilt, or eliminate its effect on AAs by standardizing gantry angle in relation to an anatomic landmark that will not change over time. The floor of the sacral vertebral canal may be a reasonable landmark for this purpose and deserves further study.}, number={1}, journal={Veterinary Radiology Ultrasound}, publisher={Wiley}, author={Wang, Sandy I. and Mathews, Kyle G. and Robertson, Ian D. and Stebbins, Marty and Trumpatori, Brian J.}, year={2005}, month={Jan}, pages={39–43} } @article{mathews_roe_stebbins_barnes_mente_2004, title={Biomechanical evaluation of suture pullout from canine arytenoid cartilages: Effects of hole diameter, suture configuration, suture size, and distraction rate}, volume={33}, ISSN={["0161-3499"]}, DOI={10.1111/j.1532-950X.2004.04029.x}, abstractNote={Objective— To evaluate the mechanical properties of canine arytenoid cartilage–suture constructs.}, number={3}, journal={VETERINARY SURGERY}, author={Mathews, KG and Roe, S and Stebbins, M and Barnes, R and Mente, PL}, year={2004}, pages={191–199} } @article{breitschwerdt_blann_stebbins_munana_davidson_jackson_willard_2004, title={Clinicopathological abnormalities and treatment response in 24 dogs seroreactive to Bartonella vinsonii (berkhoffii) antigens}, volume={40}, ISSN={["0587-2871"]}, url={http://www.scopus.com/inward/record.url?eid=2-s2.0-1842839032&partnerID=MN8TOARS}, DOI={10.5326/0400092}, abstractNote={Bartonella vinsonii (B. vinsonii) subspecies berkhoffii is a recently recognized cause of endocarditis, myocarditis, and granulomatous disease in dogs.

The secretion of prolactin in horses is affected by season, thyrotropin-releasing hormone, dopaminergic and antidopaminergic agents, exercise and stressful stimuli, meal feeding, estrogen treatment, and antiopioidergic agents. The need of prolactin for mammary growth and lactation in mares has been elucidated from research on endophyte-infected fescue grazing and its associated problems in late gestation. This has led to the development of treatments for fescue toxicity and protocols for inducing lactation in nonpregnant mares. Treatment with prolactin has demonstrated that it is involved with the shedding of the winter coat in spring (increasing concentrations) and likely with the growth of the winter coat in the fall (decreasing concentrations). Prolactin secretion is highly correlated with the photoperiod and is low in winter and high in summer. The coincidence of rising prolactin concentrations in blood with the onset of ovarian activity during the spring transition period in mares led to research showing that prolactin treatment, or inducement of high prolactin secretion by means of antidopaminergic agents, in winter can induce ovarian activity and ovulation in seasonally anovulatory mares. The combination of a small amount of estrogen in addition to an antidopaminergic agent has been shown to produce a synergy resulting in very high prolactin concentrations in blood. The results of 39 years of research on equine prolactin illustrate nicely how the gradual accumulation of knowledge derived from basic research questions can generate applied solutions to real-world problems.}, number={2}, journal={JOURNAL OF EQUINE VETERINARY SCIENCE}, author={Vivrette, S and Stebbins, ME and Martin, O and Dooley, K and Cross, D}, year={2001}, month={Feb}, pages={65–67} } @article{dickerson_page_ladue_hauck_thrall_stebbins_price_2001, title={Retrospective analysis of axial skeleton osteosarcoma in 22 large-breed dogs}, volume={15}, ISSN={["0891-6640"]}, DOI={10.1892/0891-6640(2001)015<0120:RAOASO>2.3.CO;2}, abstractNote={Medical-records of 22 large-breed dogs (>15 kg) with osteosarcoma (OSA) of the axial skeleton were reviewed to determine prevalence of metastasis and survival associated with this neoplasm.
