About the course

Course Objectives:

▪ Biomechanics of the cruciate ligament deficient stifle and tibial tuberosity advancement

▪ Patient assessment and selection of candidates for surgery

▪ Pre-operative surgical planning and implant selection

▪ Familiarisation with, and appropriate use of, TTA instrumentation

▪ Surgical technique taught in a dry lab and wet lab

▪ Post-operative management of patients

▪ Potential complications and how to deal with them

In the morning session we will initially focus on the pathophysiology of cranial
cruciate ligament disease and the theory that surrounds TTA. In addition, there
will be an opportunity to practise using digital imaging software. This course has been designed to be highly practical, offering the opportunity to practise the technique twice, once on a saw bone and then in the wet lab.
