Learn how to fix CCL Ruptures in Tiny Animals
with the Tiny TTA RAPID System (by Rita Leibinger)
Online Course with Dr. Hugo Schmökel, DECVS
“We completely stepped away from using extra capsular sutures in tiny animals, since the results with Tiny TTA RAPID are so much better. I can recommend it. And the set is very fun to use.

About Tiny TTA RAPID
Tiny TTA RAPID is designed for tiny animals - especially cats, toy dogs and dogs with short legs needing a wide advancement. The tiny sawguide allows short osteotomies.
A perfect fit with Patella Luxation
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.
