TTA for Canine Cruciate Disease & Patella Luxation Correction


Date: October 26 - October 27, 2015


This course will cover surgical treatment of the canine cruciate ligament deficient stifle using the Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA) technique. The Modified Maquet Procedure (MMP) is an evolution of the TTA procedure and will be emphasized in the lecture and laboratory portions of the course. Development of the surgical technique, implants, and associated instrumentation will be described and a detailed review of the surgical technique and clinical outcomes will be presented in lecture. A hands-on laboratory experience will be conducted using synthetic bone models followed by cadaver surgical practice of the surgical technique. Postoperative radiographs of the cadaver leg will be taken and critique of the outcome used as a teaching tool.Patella luxation occurs commonly in the canine and surgical treatment may be necessary to correct orthopedic abnormalities. An overview of the pathogenesis and treatment selection in patella luxation and a review of current surgical treatment options will be presented. This will be followed by an introduction to Ridgestop, its application and case presentations before a laboratory session where delegates will learn to the use RidgeStop instrumentation and implants on a synthetic bone model of a stifle. Key Learning Objectives:By the end of this course registrants should have an understanding of: Why we developed another cruciate surgery technique Biomechanics and theoretical foundations of MMP Case selection for MMP Performance of the MMP procedure Treatment selection in patella luxation The aims of sulcoplasty The concept of RidgeStop
