TPLO Beginner Course
The course outlines the development of the TTA Rapid procedure, a new course in Veterinary CPD in Ireland. TTA Rapid is fully explained, including the technique, the implants and instrumentation, the aftercare, potential complications and how to avoid them. A paper exercise demonstrates calculation of cage size for the correct tibial tuberosity advancement. Dry bone and cadaver exercises follow.
The course is designed for those already familiar with stifle surgery and the diagnoses of cranial cruciate ligament disease. Meniscal examination will not be a focus. Previous experience of osteomy techniques is not required, but is an asset.
