A 4-year-old, male, entire Newfoundland was presented for investigation of an acute onset cervical ventroflexion and pyrexia, 4 days following a hip replacement surgery. Neurological examination confirmed prominent cervical ventroflexion characterise... Read More about Dropped-head syndrome in a dog secondary to myopathy of the cervical extensor muscles.

Canine insulinomas and their presumed metastases are most conspicuous in the late arterial phase in a triple arterial phase CT protocol (2023)
Journal Article
Skarbek, A., Fouriez-Lablée, V., Dirrig, H., & Llabres-Diaz, F. (2023). Canine insulinomas and their presumed metastases are most conspicuous in the late arterial phase in a triple arterial phase CT protocol. Veterinary Radiology and Ultrasound, https://doi.org/10.1111/vru.13278

Avid arterial enhancement is the commonly described characteristic of canine insulinomas in contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT). However, this finding is also reported as inconsistent. The main aim of this study was to investigate in detai...

A case series of 37 surgically managed, paraplegic, deep pain negative, French bulldogs with thoracolumbar intervertebral disc extrusion from two English referral centres (2023)
Journal Article
Jones, G., Cherubini, G., Llabres-Diaz, F., Caine, A., & De Stefani, A. (in press). A case series of 37 surgically managed, paraplegic, deep pain negative, French bulldogs with thoracolumbar intervertebral disc extrusion from two English referral centres. Veterinary Record Open, https://doi.org/10.1002/vro2.61

Background: Thoracolumbar intervertebral disc extrusions (TL-IVDE) are a common spinal disorder in dogs, especially within chondrodystrophic breeds. Loss of deep nociception is a well-documented negative prognostic indicator in dogs with TL-IVDE, wi...

Early CT in dogs following traumatic brain injury has limited value in predicting short?term prognosis (2020)
Journal Article
Lee, C. Y., Llabres?Diaz, F., Wyatt, S., & Beltran, E. (2021). Early CT in dogs following traumatic brain injury has limited value in predicting short?term prognosis. Veterinary Radiology and Ultrasound, 62(2), 181-189. https://doi.org/10.1111/vru.12933

Traumatic brain injury is associated with a high risk of mortality in veterinary patients, however publications describing valid prognostic indicators are currently lacking. The objective of this retrospective observational study was to determine whe...

A radiographic measurement of left atrial size in dogs (2018)
Journal Article
Salguero, X. S., Prandi, D., Llabres-Diaz, F., Manzanilla, E. G., & Bussadori, C. (2018). A radiographic measurement of left atrial size in dogs. Irish Veterinary Journal, 71, 25. https://doi.org/10.1186/s13620-018-0137-x

The dimensions of the left atrium in cases with mitral regurgitation are an indirect measurement of its severity. The objective of this study was to evaluate the value of a new radiographic measurement, the radiographic left atrial dimension (RLAD),...
