    Cranial closing wedge osteotomy has become a popular technique for the treatment of canine cranial cruciate ligament disease in dogs that have a steep tibial plateau or joint angle, such as West Highland Terriers. It can also be a preferred method of treatment in smaller dogs where techniques like TTA may be difficult. In this one-day highly practical cadaver-based course we cover the key objectives of this surgery before practising the technique on saw bone and then in the wet lab for a hands-on practical.

    Topics to be covered include:

    • Biomechanics of the cruciate ligament deficient stifle and cranial closing wedge osteotomy
    • Patient assessment and the selection of candidates for CCWO
    • Pre-operative surgical planning and implant selection
    • Familiarisation with and appropriate use of instrumentation
    • Understanding the post-operative management of patients
    • Identifying potential complications and how to avoid/deal with them
    • Practising the surgical technique taught in a dry lab and wet lab
  • In association with...
