About The Webinar

Is Tibial Tuberosity Advancement the Optimal Solution for Cranial Cruciate Deficiency?

Cruciate Disease is the commonest cause of hindlimb lameness in our patients and the list of treatment options for managing this condition is considerable. In this seminar Andy explores the concept of an 'optimal' method for managing Cranial Cruciate Deficiency by looking at the categories of current treatment methods and whether these different procedures meet the short and long term needs of our Cranial Cruciate patients. To begin, he looks at the anatomy, consequences of pathology, aetiology and diagnosis of Cranial Cruciate Ligament degeneration. This information is then used to explore the strengths and weaknesses of the various treatment options. Andy then argues that Geometry Modifying procedures offer significant benefits over current Intra and Extra Capsular methods and that within the Geometry Modifying procedures, Tibial Tuberosity Advancement when performed correctly, shows the most promise when looking for the optimal outcomes for our patients.
