Patellar Luxation Correction

Online Lecture & Wet Lab

This course includes two parts and is designed for the veterinarian who wishes to learn/refine the techniques of correction of patellar luxation with emphasis on medial patellar luxation. Specific components of the surgical procedure taught will be block recession trochleoplasty, tibial tuberosity transposition, medial release, and lateral imbrication including tips that aren’t in any of the textbooks!
 
Part One of this course is a pre-recorded online lecture that includes a comprehensive discussion of the pathophysiology of patellar luxation, physical examination tips and pointers for radiographic assessment. Step-by-step surgical assessment and treatment will be presented including tips for special challenges as concurrent patellar luxation and cranial cruciate ligament disease. Postoperative care and monitoring will be presented.
 
Part Two of this course is a hands-on workshop. The medial patella correction techniques will be demonstrated in a step-by-step fashion using high resolution video and practiced on canine cadavers under faculty supervision.

 

The online lecture will be available for 30 days before the hands-on wet lab. The online lecture includes the following modules:
Patellar Luxation
Part 1: Pathoanatomy, Diagnostic Tips and Client Education
Part 2: Case Selection and Surgical Approach
Part 3: Trochleoplasty and Tibial Crest Transposition
Part 4: Soft Tissue Tension Balancing, Surgical Instrumentation, and Postoperative Care
