Advanced Stifle Repair Lecture and Lab: TTA (Tibial Tuberosity Advancement) — Sponsored by SECUROS
Friday, August 23
Instructed by: Matthew Barnhart, DVM, MS, DACVS
Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA) has become a preferred method for stabilizing the canine stifle after a cranial cruciate rupture. This laboratory 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 and bioresorbable cages. This laboratory will thoroughly review the biomechanics of TTA, preoperative planning techniques, postoperative management, 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 bone models (for attendees to keep for display and educational use). Additional time will be devoted to discussing simultaneous correction of patella luxation. The course instructor has extensive experience performing TTAs and has taught veterinarians around the world how to successfully perform this technique.
This course also includes:
Note: Participants should have a basic knowledge of the anatomy and surgical approach to the stifle.
