Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA) has become one of the preferred techniques used in orthopaedic practice for the treatment of cranial cruciate ligament disease. It is more invasive than some of the other techniques and involves an osteotomy. We strongly recommend attending a practical course before attempting this technique.
Securos Orthopaedic Institute has trained many veterinary surgeons worldwide to a level where they feel confident to use this technique in practice.
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.
