Elbow Dysplasia

OFA Elbow Dysplasia Information  www.offa.org/ed_types.html


Elbow dysplasia is a condition caused by the abnormal growth of cells, tissue, or bone. The condition is characterized by a series of four developmental abnormalities that lead to malformation and degeneration of the elbow joint. It is the most common cause of elbow pain and lameness, and one of the most common causes of forelimb lameness. Causes of elbow dysplasia are genetic, developmental and nutritional.


OFA certification for elbow radiographs should be done after 24 months of age generally these are done at the same time as the hip evaluation.
