Securos UK: Cranial Closing Wedge Osteotomy
CPD Central | London, England
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 UK: Cranial Closing Wedge Osteotomy event, originally scheduled for September 3, 2020.
We recognize that this disruption will come as disappointing news. We will be processing full refunds within the next week. Please contact Kelly Nix at firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
Cranial Closing Wedge Osteotomy (CCWO) Course
Lecture and Wet Lab
Cranial Closing Wedge Osteotomy (CCWO) has become a popular technique for the treatment of canine cranial cruciate ligament disease in dogs that have a steep tibial plateau or joint angle, such as West Highland Terriers. It can also be a preferred method of treatment in smaller dogs where techniques like TTA may be difficult. In the morning session we cover the key objectives before practicing the technique on saw bone and then in the wet lab for a hands-on practical.Course Objectives:
- To understand the biomechanics of the cruciate ligament deficient stifle and cranial closing wedge Osteotomy
- To understand patient assessment and the selection of candidates for CCWO
- To understand pre-operative surgical planning and implant selection
- To develop familiarisation with and appropriate use of instrumentation
- To understand the post-operative management of patients
- To identify potential complications and how to avoid/deal with them
- To learn and practice the surgical technique taught in a dry lab and wet lab
