While this research is specifically aimed at ensuring the welfare of working dogs, it is likely the outcomes will help us understand how to provide a more enriched life for all dogs who may spend some time in encl ..read more

3D-printed titanium plates are more prone to cyclic failure The aim of the study recently completed by Professor Andrew Worth of Massey University was to biomechanically compare the bending stiffness, strength, and cyclic fatigue of titanium bone plates used in veterinary orthopaedics. The titanium plates being compared were either additively manufactured (AM) or conventionaly manufactured (CM) limited contact plates (LCP) of equivalent dimensions using plate-screw constructs. Additively manufactured (computer designed and 3D printed) plates are gaining in popularity in the veterinary industr ..read more
