Cruciate Repair experience recommended

Veterinarians, join us for an in-person, TTA RAPID® CE Course featuring TTA expert, Dr. Yves Samoy in Orlando on Jan 13, 2023 (Before VMX) 

The Titanium TTA RAPID® system is a straightforward procedure to treat Cranial Cruciate Ligament Ruptures in Canine and Feline patients. TTA RAPID only requires a partial osteotomy. It features multiple points of screw fixation for extra security, and you can simply add a patella luxation spacer to the cage in case your patient suffers from an additional Patellar Luxation. The TTA RAPID® is highly versatile with 2mm up to 15mm cages. It has been shown to reduce surgery time, reduce infection rates and get patients "back on their feet" quickly.

The CORA-Based Leveling Osteotomy (CBLO) is a new approach and technique to treat the cranial cruciate ligament rupture in dogs. The CBLO is a corrective osteotomy technique that, similar to TPLO, changes the position of the Tibial Plateau. The CBLO, however, targets to address challenges like secondary (late) meniscal injuries, stress on caudal cruciate ligament, reduction of axis shift and secondary translation as well as mismatch of articulating surfaces.

The Rita Leibinger CBLO system incorporates anatomically shaped implants made of Titanium for best biocompatibility. 

During the course the theoretical knowledge of cranial cruciate ligament ruptures and the indications for a CBLO will be presented. Afterwards there will be time for the hands-on practical part to practice the technique and experience the new implants.

The LeiLOX 1.5/2.0 Micro Locking System was specifically developed for small dogs and cats. All implants are made of titanium which has the advantages of high biocompatibility, low temperature sensitiveness, lightweight but high strength - perfect for small patients.

The LeiLOX 2.0-3.5 Stainless Steel systems are made of the highest quality surgical implant steel. Stainless Steel implants can take high loads and forces which make them very suitable for large and giant breed dogs. In addition, the multi-axial locking system allows high flexibility in fixation.

The system is highly versatile and suitable for a wide range of applications like fractures of all different long bones, pelvic fractures, fractures near joints, MIPO, rod-plate constructs, oral maxillofacial, corrective osteotomies and more. Within
these systems, a wide variety of locking plates and screws are available which allow for a more secure fixation.

Veterinarians are invited to join our 2-day hands-on continuing education course on March 2023 at a world-class teaching facility in Boca Raton, Florida, featuring Dr. Jeff Mayo (DVM, DABVP, MANZCVS).

The first day will be about Soft Tissue Surgery, focusing on RF Surgery - the things you should know about RF Surgery use and how to apply them in a safe manner to common surgical procedures in veterinary practice to minimize patient morbidity and complications.

The second day will be on orthopedic surgery in small animals, focusing on the TTA RAPID® & Rapid Luxation procedure. 

The Titanium TTA RAPID® system is a straightforward procedure to treat Cranial Cruciate Ligament Ruptures in Canine and Feline patients. TTA RAPID only requires a partial osteotomy. It features multiple points of screw fixation for extra security, and you can simply add a patella luxation spacer to the cage in case your patient suffers from an additional Patellar Luxation.

Agenda:

Stifle anatomy, Diagnosis cruciate ligament rupture, Approach to stifle joint, Stifle examination, Meniscus treatment, TPLO Technique and biomechanics, Pre-operation planning TPLO, Digital Planning of TPLO, X-Ray, Discussion of post-op results, Rehabilitation, Pitfalls and solutions, Practical Lab (Dry Lab and Wet Lab)

The TPLO technique changes the mechanics of the knee joint by limiting the movement of the joint and thus leads to stabilization. The technique involves an osteotomy of the tibia to change the angle of the tibial plateau and to ensure that the tibial thrust is controlled by the caudal cruciate ligament and the various caudal muscle groups.

The operation requires special equipment and is particularly suitable for larger and active dogs. However, this technique can also be used for cranial cruciate ligament tears in small dogs and cats.

In dogs that also suffer from a luxated patella, the TPLO technique can also be used to align the hind leg to correct tension in the quadriceps muscles.

Our LeiLOX TPLO Systems are suitable for all mid- to giant breed dogs.

Featuring multiaxial locking screws that can be locked in a 90° angle with a 12° deviation in any direction, it allows you to angle the screws away from vital structures. Two precisely designed compression holes enable a very tight compression of the osteotomy, which supports bone healing.

Our Stainless Steel LeiLOX TPLO implants are made of the highest grade medical steel and are contoured to match the anatomic shape of the bone. Now also available in Titanium for better biocompatibility, our new TPLO Swing Implants are very durable but lightweight, and low in temperature sensitiveness.

All of our implants are manufactured by us in Germany. Nevertheless, due to a lean, cost-efficient and robot-assisted production, the implants can be offered in highly competitive prices.

Just like with large breed patients, small dogs and cats with cranial cruciate ligament ruptures also benefit from osteotomy techniques. Small patients, however, can be more anatomically challenging. Their structures are smaller and more delicate but the necessary correction of the tibia plateau is mostly larger. In addition, the small patients often suffer from a patella luxation at the same time.

In this course, you will learn about the unique advantages of each of the osteotomy techniques - TTA Rapid Tiny, Tibia Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO), and Cora Based Leveling Osteotomy (CBLO) - as well as how to correctly select the appropriate procedure for each individual patient, and most importantly, how to use all of these techniques safely. 

In this 2-day intensive course, the clinical rehabilitation of an anterior cruciate ligament tear in small patients is first discussed, followed by an introduction to each of the three osteotomy techniques and their particular advantages. A comparison to the lateral suture techniques, which are most commonly used in small patients, shall also be deliberated.

Multiple hands-on wet labs are scheduled over the two days, so that you may directly apply and consolidate through practical exercises what you have learned theoretically.

The courses are supported by Rita Leibinger GmbH & Co. KG and Dr. Hugo Schmökel.
