This learning stream starts with the pathophysiology of cranial cruciate ligament disease and also the surgical theory behind TTA before moving on to practical surgical technique. The use of digital imaging software is also covered.
Topics covered include:

- Patient assessment and selection of candidates for surgery
- Pre-operative surgical planning and implant selection
- Familiarisation with, and appropriate use of, TTA instrumentation
