Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy

to Address Cranial Cruciate Ligament Insufficiency       


Registration:

$1200 USD


TPLO has become a favorite technique of general and specialty veterinarians to treat CrCL tears in all sizes of dogs. TPLO stabilizes the stifle by eliminating cranial tibial thrust. TPLO is an excellent technique for treating partial and complete tears of the CrCL. This interactive course includes lectures and laboratories to teach participants the theory and method of tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO). Participants will perform TPLOs on plastic bones and cadavers using state of the art equipment and implants. Participants will use locking plate technology to simplify, increase precision and reduce complications of the procedure. Participants should have a basic knowledge of the anatomy and surgical approach to the stifle and principles of bone plate application. Postoperative radiographs will be taken, if available, to assess the participant’s repair technique. Postoperative management will also be discussed.


Learning Objectives:


  • Ability to recognize the clinical and radiographic indications for cruciate surgery
  • Familiarity with the evidence base and rationale behind TPLO
  • Ability to perform surgical planning for TPLO
  • Familiarity with the surgical approach for combined stifle joint exploration and TPLO surgery
  • Familiarity with performing a tibial plateau leveling osteotomy and applying a locking TPLO plate
  • Ability to apply their knowledge in managing meniscal injury in cruciate disease
  • Ability to identify and manage complications after cruciate surgery


VOI provides all equipment and materials for each fracture course.

  • Earn 13.5 RACE approved credit hours
  • Receive Certificate of Completion
