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 – Portland wet labs, originally scheduled for September 19-20, 2020.

Tibial Plateau-Leveling Osteotomy

Online Lecture & Wet Lab

Tibial plateau-leveling osteotomies have become popular techniques for the treatment of canine cranial cruciate ligament disease. This course is designed for the veterinarian who wishes to learn/refine the tibial plateau-leveling osteotomy technique and to understand the major advantages of PAX Polyaxial Locking TPLO Plate System.
 
Part One of this course is a pre-recorded online lecture that includes a comprehensive discussion aetiopathogenesis, clinical examination, radiographic considerations, TPLO biomechanics, patient selection, complications related to TPLO surgery, pre-surgical planning, instrumentation, surgical technique, and peri/post-operative management.
 
Part Two of this course is a hands-on workshop. Participants will perform the TPLO technique on a bone model and two canine cadavers 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.
