CORA Based Leveling Osteotomy (CBLO) for Veterinary Technicians – August 30 – September 1, 2021
August 30, 2021 - September 1, 2021
CE Hours: 20.0 Hours
Course Description: CORA based leveling osteotomy is a procedure where the tibial plateau angle is modified by centering the saw blade (ACA) at the location of the CORA (center of rotation of angulation). In doing so there is no secondary translation, i.e., the proximal anatomic axis and distal anatomic axis are aligned. The osteotomy is stabilized with a Veterinary Orthopedic Implant (V.O.I.) specially designed locking plate and counter-sink compression screw. The course will detail surgical planning, surgical technique, post-operative management, complications, and long-term outcome. In this course participants will familiarize themselves with the CBLO procedure through lecture, clinical case presentations, radiographic pre-operative planning, and by performing the procedures on saw bone models and cadavers. Course participants will learn basic techniques in addition to techniques including management of Juvenile CCL injury with CBLO, small breed CBLO application (small plastic bone), CBLO with concurrent patella luxation correction, and double cut techniques for excessive tibial plateau angle (eTPA).
Please be advised that technicians may only attend with a veterinarian who they have a working relationship with.
