Abstract

Many skeletal muscle diseases were observed in fast growth birds, and the high body weight, associated to a bone structure in formation are named to be the principal responsible causes for the occurrence of these diseases, which results in dysfunction of the locomotor apparatus. This present research intends to make an anatomical, pathological and radiographic study of the structures involved in the tibiotarsal rotation, besides the study of the joint alterations by arthrography and histology, giving a description with anatomical, macroscopic, microscopic and radiographic considerations of the ostrich's hind limbs (African Black). This way, it'll be possible to contribute to the comprehension of this disease that has caused many losses on the ostrich farm.
