Objectives and goals of the course

This TPLO course is designed for practicing veterinarians with experience in small animal orthopaedic surgery. The participants will became familiar with the planning and execution of the most commonly performed procedure in cranial cruciate deficient stifle using one of the most versatile TPLO locking system.
The detailed theoretical sessions will bring the knowledge of rationale, case selection, preoperative planning, surgical execution and potential complications in TPLO procedure. The structure of the labs will allows the participants to learn the procedure in a “step by step” manner first on a bone models and then on a cadaver species.
