Learn How to Perform CCL Repair

Online CE Course with Dr. Yves Samoy ECVSMR

“It's firm. It's safe. It's RAPID. - Dr. Yves Samoy


With almost 100,000 implantations worldwide, TTA RAPID is one of the most attractive TTA techniques on the market. TTA RAPID can not only fix a cranial cruciate ligament rupture, but also a simultaneous patella luxation.

With 54 different cage sizes, TTA RAPID is the most flexible surgical technique designed to repair a cruciate ligament injury.

The new “Tiny” TTA RAPID set now makes it possible to treat small dogs and cats with specially designed cages and custom 1.5/2.0mm screws. The instrumentation set features a new “tiny” sawguide.

TTA RAPID implants offer high stability with a less invasive approach. The TTA Rapid surgery allows for shorter surgery times which provides less of a risk of infection, less anesthesia and less costs.

The open sponge Titanium construct allows for rapid bone growth throughout the cage.

Due to the simplicity of the technique and instruments, a level of comfort can be achieved quickly.

Online Course

What you will learn in this course

Dr. Yves Samoy shares with you his knowledge that he has gained since the beginning of TTA RAPID. This online course is recorded with the same presentation materials used in the "live" wet-labs all around the globe. And you can even ask questions in the comments section of each chapter. Dr. Samoy will then receive an email with your question and follow-up with you that way.

The only difference between this online course and a wet-lab is the practical hands-on sessions. This virtual course offers a long and detailed "real" surgery with live comments from Dr. Yves Samoy. But, you will be required to practice on your own with cadavers before operating on a real patient.
