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
