Pathogenesis and surgical options for cranial cruciate ligament ruptureDAY: SaturdayTIME: 11.35 - 12.20
If you work in canine rehabilitation, you work with cranial cruciate ligament disease! Although the condition may be very familiar to you; do you know how and why it occurs? Many cases are managed surgically; but the surgeons report may state the dog has had a TPLO, CWO, CBLO, TTA, MMP, Tightrope, lateral suture…. the list can be long and confusing; do you know the differences between the procedures? This lecture will aim to provide you with an overview of why this condition occurs along with details of the surgical options to manage the condition. By gaining a better understanding of the condition and surgery it will allow you to maximise your rehabilitation programme, as well making it easier to understand a surgeon’s report, and answer questions that clients may throw at you.
