Introduction to Advanced Stifle Surgery (TTA)

Date of Event - 1st November 2017

Venue - Dunstable, UK

Organiser - VETisco

Description - The stifle is the most commonly entered joint and frequently required in general practice, yet can be the most frustrating to treat, especially when the cruciate is involved. Consideration of the multiple options for surgical management can be bewildering. Building on an assumed knowledge of stifle anatomy, basic techniques and surgical principles, successful management of these cases can be optimized with more advanced periarticular surgical techniques This course will: • review the options for surgical management for cranial cruciate disease • give you confidence in decision making – form your own decision tree based on best evidence • consider and examine the implants available and understand the principles behind their design • involve practical use of a TTA kit on a tibial bone model • discuss complications and how to avoid or deal with them Speaker is James Farrell BVetMed MRCVS Cert SAS.
