Tibial Tuberosity Advancement

Online Lecture & Wet Lab

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.
Part One of this course is a pre-recorded online lecture that includes a thorough review of 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. Simultaneous correction of patella luxation will also be reviewed.
Part Two of this course is a hands-on workshop. Each attendee will perform the TTA technique on a bone model and two canine cadaver knees under faculty supervision. 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.
The online lecture will be available for 30 days before the hands-on wet lab. The online lecture includes the following modules:
Tibial Tuberosity Advancement Series
Part 1: CCL Rupture Pathophysiology and Review of the Meniscus
Part 2: Surgical Theory, Biomechanics, and Pre-op Planning
Part 3: Instrumentation, Surgical Technique, and Post-Op Management
Part 4: Complications
*This program has been approved for 13 hours of continuing education credit in jurisdictions that recognize RACE approval.
