Canine Stifle Stabilization Course: TightRope CCL Technique


Apr 17, 2020 to Apr 18, 2020


This course is designed for veterinarians considering the addition of a surgical lateral suture repair for a canine CrCL deficient stifle to their practice. This comprehensive 2-day course offers didactic and hands-on sessions. To ensure reproducible success when implanting the TightRope CCL implant, attendees will have the ability to repeat the wet lab exercises multiple times. This course will focus solely on the TightRope CCL technique.
Didactic sessions will discuss canine anatomy, sterile surgical prep, surgical approaches, and examination and treatment of the meniscus. Lectures will engage attendees in case selections, treatment options, surgical outcomes, and current research.

During hands-on lab sessions, participants will learn patient position and sterile preparation of the hindlimb, surgical approaches to the stifle, examination and treatment of the meniscus, and proper application of the Arthrex TightRope CCL implant.

Participants are encouraged to bring a surgical tech to this course in order to develop a team approach to performing this surgery.
