Cora Based Leveling Osteotomy (CBLO)
Manchester. M1 2JW
This course is supported by RITA LEIBINGER GmbH & Co. KG
The Cora Based Leveling Osteotomy (CBLO) is a new approach and technique to treat the cranial cruciate ligament rupture in dogs. The CBLO is a corrective osteotomy technique that similar to TPLO changes the position of the Tibial Plateau. The CBLO however addresses challenges like secondary (late) meniscal injuries, stress on caudal cruciate ligament, reduction of axis shift and secondary translation as well as mismatch of articulating surfaces.
The Rita Leibinger CBLO system incorporates anatomically shaped implants made of Titanium for best biocompatibility.
During the course the theoretical knowledge of cranial cruciate ligament ruptures and the indications for a CBLO will be presented. Afterwards there will be time for the hands-on practical part to practice the technique end experience the new implants.
Topics to be covered:
- Stifle anatomy and diagnosis cruciate ligament rupture
- Approach to stifle joint and stifle examination, meniscus treatment
- pre-op planning of CBLO
- Post-operative management of patients
- Pit Falls and solutions
- Hands-on wet lab CBLO
