On the femoral side, we inserted the cementless femoral implant into the femoral canal with the same operation protocol of Case 1.
There have been some studies about race variances in human proximal femoral canal (Rawal et al., 2012; Tawada et al., 2015; Umer et al., 2010; Yang et al., 2014; Yeung et al., 2006), however, there is no adequate studies about it in dog breeds.

Anatomically, they represent herniations of the peritoneal sac through the femoral ring into the femoral canal, lying postero-inferiorly to the inguinal ligament.
Our standard PLND involves the dissection and removal of lymphatic tissue from the level of the external iliac vein to the obturator nerve, extending proximally to the common iliac artery bifurcation and distal to the proximal femoral canal to include the node of Cloquet.
In the earlier years, cement was finger packed into the femoral canal without pressurisation.
After prosthesis design completed (Fig4), the simulation of prosthesis in the femoral canal begins and important parameters such as anteversion and CCD are extracted (Fig5).
The use of a collarless stem is not justified in this case as while cementing there will be gap on the medial side after the neck cut has been made through which cement could extrude out and could lead to an unstable prosthesis which might sink within the femoral canal. Also, the use of a collarless stem for a relatively undisplaced femoral neck fracture in a physiologically young patient is unjustified.
More cost effective than purchasing individual instruments, this all-in-one tray system includes a disposable inserter rod, two restrictors, femoral canal brush, two sculpts and a femoral canal suction absorber.
