  • Clinical signs and diagnosis of cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) rupture
  • Radiographic interpretation of stifle joint radiographs
  • Surgical techniques for TPLO, including patient selection, preoperative planning, intraoperative techniques, and postoperative management
  • Complication management and prevention strategies
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy protocols for dogs undergoing TPLO surgery
About our LeiLOX TPLO Systems
Our LeiLOX TPLO Systems are suitable for all mid- to giant breed dogs.

Featuring multiaxial locking screws that can be locked in a 90° angle with a 12° deviation in any direction, it allows you to angle the screws away from vital structures. Two precisely designed compression holes enable a very tight compression of the osteotomy, which supports 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 but lightweight, and low in temperature sensitiveness.

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.
