Subject specific anatomical models of the canine stifle can be extremely valuable in understanding the biomechanical risks and causes associated with cranial cruciate ligament and meniscal injuries. Such models would also be powerful in improving preventative and therapeutic strategies for canines [1]. The menisci play an important role in joint function by transmitting tibio-femoral loads and by reducing the pressure on the articular cartilage. Multibody modeling methods often ignore the menisci in order to simplify the representation of the joint structures.
