Scoliosis can be produced in a dog by an injury to the epiphyseal cartilaginous plate on one side of the body of a vertebra.

It is possible that asymmetrical injury of the epiphyseal cartilaginous plate as a corrective procedure for deformities of the spine may be successfully utilized clinically. Hemivertebrae and other anomalies, growth disturbances, scoliosis, and epiphysitis may be amenable to this method in suitable cases in which the lumbar vertebrae are involved.
