Course Description
This intensive course is designed for veterinarians who want to specialize in orthopedic surgery and want to learn advanced techniques for managing knee injuries in small animals. The course covers a range of topics, including:

  • Anatomy and biomechanics of the stifle joint (knee)
  • Clinical signs and diagnosis of cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) rupture
  • Radiographic interpretation of stifle joint radiographs.
  • Surgical techniques for TPLO, including its application in combination with patella luxation, as well as patient selection, preoperative planning, intraoperative techniques, and postoperative management.
  • Complication management and prevention strategies.
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy protocols for dogs undergoing TPLO surgery.

After completing this course, you will be able to gain a comprehensive understanding of the TPLO procedure and be able to confidently diagnose and manage CCL injuries in dogs. You shall also be equipped with the skills and knowledge to perform the surgery with the best possible outcomes for your patients.

About our LeiLOX TPLO Systems
Our LeiLOX TPLO Systems are suitable for all dog breeds, as well as cats.

Featuring multiaxial locking screws that can be secured at a 90° angle with a 12° deviation in any direction, providing flexibility to safeguard important structures such as the osteotomy gap or joint surfaces. Additionally, two precisely engineered compression holes enable a tight compression of the osteotomy, promoting optimal 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 yet lightweight, and low in temperature sensitiveness. Moreover, they are pre-shaped caudally for optimal placement on the two fragments.

The LeiLOX TPLO System offers the unique capability to address a concurrent medial patellar luxation during surgery. This system builds upon the proven success of the Rapid Luxation System by employing a similar technique. Using a specialized instrument, the proximal fragment can be precisely adjusted medially before securing it in its final position.

All of our implants are manufactured in-house at our plant in Germany. Due to a lean, cost-efficient and robot-assisted production, the implants can be offered in competitive and economical prices.
