Date: February 21 - February 23, 2017
Cranial cruciate ligament insufficiency is a common orthopedic problem in dogs. Successful treatment of this condition is based on the ability to correctly diagnose the condition, select and perform the appropriate treatment, and manage the patient postoperatively. This course will provide up-to-date information on the etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of cranial cruciate ligament insufficiency. Lectures and labs will emphasize techniques that can readily be performed in practice. Participants will learn how to differentiate partial versus complete tears of the CrCL. The course will include sections on stifle extracapsular repair, TPLO, treatment of meniscal tears and meniscal release using the latest technology and surgical technique. Following lecture and case review, participants will perform all these different techniques on cadavers and plastic bone models. Postoperative radiographs will be taken to assess the participants repair technique. Postoperative management will also be discussed.
