Course Description
This intensive 2-day course on TTA RAPID® and Patella Luxation provides a comprehensive exploration of stifle anatomy, cruciate ligament rupture diagnosis, and the TTA RAPID® technique. Participants will master stifle examination techniques, meniscus treatment, and pre-operative planning for TTA RAPID, with additional focus on incorporating the RAPID LUXATION spacer for concurrent patella luxation cases. The second day includes discussions on X-ray interpretation, patella luxation diagnosis and treatment, as well as addressing common surgical pitfalls and solutions. Hands-on dry and wet lab sessions will cover TTA RAPID®, patella luxation correction, and sulcoplasty techniques. Through a blend of lectures, practical demonstrations, and interactive lab experiences, attendees will gain the expertise necessary to confidently perform TTA RAPID® surgery and effectively manage patella luxation in clinical practice.
About TTA RAPID® & RAPID Patella Luxation System
The 3D-printed, Titanium TTA RAPID® System is a straightforward procedure to treat Cranial Cruciate Ligament Ruptures in canine and feline patients. TTA RAPID® only requires a partial osteotomy and one implant that features multiple points of screw fixation for extra security. You can simply add a RAPID LUXATION spacer to the cage when your patient also suffers from a patella luxation. Now with 59 different cages ranging from 2mm up to 18mm sizes, the TTA RAPID® is the most versatile technique designed to repair a cruciate ligament injury, from toy to giant breeds. After more than 100,000 successful surgeries, it has been shown to reduce surgery time, significantly lower the risk of infection, and get patients back on their paws quickly.
