Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO) for Veterinary Technicians – August 27-29, 2021
August 27 - August 29
RACE approved: 23.5 Hours
TPLO has become a favorite technique of general and specialty veterinarians to treat CrCL tears in all sizes of dogs. TPLO stabilizes the stifle by eliminating cranial tibial thrust. TPLO is an excellent technique for treating partial and complete tears of the CrCL. This interactive course includes lectures and laboratories to teach participants the theory and method of tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO). Participants will perform TPLOs on plastic bones and cadavers using state of the art equipment and implants. Participants will use locking plate technology to simplify, increase precision and reduce complications of the procedure. Participants should have a basic knowledge of the anatomy and surgical approach to the stifle and principles of bone plate application. The Principles of Fracture Repair Course is a prerequisite. Postoperative radiographs will be taken to assess the participant’s repair technique. Postoperative management will also be discussed.
Please be advised that technicians may only attend with a veterinarian who they have a working relationship with.
