About the course

The Modified Maquet Procedure (MMP) is an evolution of the TTA procedure for treatment of lameness due to cranial cruciate failure.

The course is in two parts: a lecture-based introduction followed by a practical session using synthetic bone models of the stifle, animations and video support material will also be used. The development of the technique, implants and associated instrumentation will be described, and a detailed review of surgical technique and clinical outcomes will cover all aspects of MMP.

The benefits of RidgeStop:

  • Titanium, porous wedge replaces existing TTA systems
  • Open-pore titanium encourages bone growth
  • Simplified procedure
  • 20 – 25-minute surgical time with short convalescence
  • Can be used on small, large and giant breeds

During this session we will cover:

  • Biomechanics and theoretical foundations of TTA’s
  • An introduction to MMP and OrthoFoam™
  • Advancement of the 90° patella tendon angle - the controversies
  • How to perform an MMP procedure with confidence
  • Clinical experience and publications
  • Dry bone practical session

By the end of this course delegates should understand:

  • Why we’ve developed another cruciate surgery technique
  • Biomechanics and theoretical foundations of MMP
  • Case selection for MMP
  • Ability to perform MMP procedure
