Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Event Cancelled

As part of a global healthcare organization, we believe we have a responsibility to contribute to global efforts to contain and minimize the spread of COVID-19, as well as protect our associates and yours. With this in mind, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Securos University – Austin wet labs, originally scheduled for April 24-25, 2021.

We recognize that this disruption will come as disappointing news. We will be processing full refunds to all registered attendees. Please contact Kelly Nix at university@securos.scom with any questions.

We place a high importance on bringing together this valued group of practitioners that have made a continued commitment to Securos University and look forward to the time in which we can come together in-person.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have. Thank you for your understanding and support!

Description

Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA) has become a preferred method for stabilizing the canine stifle after a cranial cruciate rupture. This course is designed for the veterinarian who wishes to learn/refine the TTA technique and to understand the major advantages of the XGEN “forkless” TTA system. This laboratory will thoroughly review the biomechanics of TTA, preoperative planning techniques, postoperative management/ rehabilitation and how best to prevent and treat postoperative complications. The TTA operative technique will be taught in a step-by-step fashion with the assistance of intraoperative videos, and practice on canine cadavers. Simultaneous correction of patella luxation will also be reviewed. This lab is only for veterinarians who already have a thorough knowledge of the relevant stifle anatomy, extensive stifle surgery experience, and prior training in bone plating techniques and principles.
*This program was reviewed and approved by the AAVSB RACE program for 8 hours of continuing education in jurisdictions which recognize AAVSB RACE approval. Please contact the AAVSB RACE program if you have any comments/concerns regarding this program's validity or relevancy to the veterinary profession.
