This study used radiographic techniques to evaluate the Insall Salvati index (ratio of the length of the patellar ligament to the length of the patella - L:P) to compare the verticality patellar position at small-medium and large breed dogs that were grouped in healthy dogs, dogs with patellar luxation and with cranial cruciate ligament ruptures. Except for the based on L:P ratio measurement at small-medium breed dogs and in large-breed there was no difference among the groups. In large large-breed dogs the LPL is associated with patella baja. No statistically significant differences of L:P ratio between dogs affected or unaffected with cranial cruciate ligament rupture are reported Further studies using other imaging techniques are required in small and large-breed dogs with patella luxation (LPL and MPL).
