Learn how to fix


with the RAPID LUXATION System (by Rita Leibinger)

Online Course with Dr. Hugo Schmökel, DECVS

“Integrates 100% with TTA RAPID. - Dr. Hugo Schmökel 


We understand that patella luxations can be challenging, especially using previous techniques. Luckily, we have developed a seamless, simple technique for addressing both patella luxations and cruciate ligament ruptures.

We are committed to providing education opportunities from board certified surgeons to our customers. We know our canine friends out there would appreciate the help in returning to chasing their favorite ball.

A perfect fit with TTA RAPID

About 20% of small patients have both a patella luxation and a cruciate tear. These are related because the cranial cruciate ligament limits internal rotation. If the ligament ruptures, we not only have a cranial subluxation of the tibia, but also an increased internal rotation which aggrevates a medial patella luxation.

This means if the patient previously had a grade 1 or 2 patella luxation with no clinical signs, he now has a grade 3 luxation after the cruciate ligament ruptures. Now he is clinically relevant and needs both pathologies to be addressed: the cruciate and the patella luxation.
