TPLO has become a favorite technique of general and specialty veterinarians to treat CrCL tears in all sizes of dogs. TPLO stabilizes the stifle by eliminating cranial tibial thrust. TPLO is an excellent technique for treating partial and complete tears of the CrCL. This interactive course includes lectures and laboratories to teach participants the theory and method of tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO). Participants will perform TPLOs on plastic bones and cadavers using state of the art equipment and implants. Participants will use locking plate technology to simplify, increase precision and reduce complications of the procedure. Participants should have a basic knowledge of anatomy and surgical approach to the stifle and principles of bone plate application. Postoperative radiographs will be taken to assess the participant’s repair technique. Postoperative management will also be discussed.
