About TTA RAPID
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.
What you will learn in this course
