Patellar Luxation Part 3: Trochleoplasty and Tibial Crest Transposition
This lecture has been RACE approved for 1 CE hour for veterinarians and veterinary technicians.
In this module, you will learn how to determine if your patient requires a trochleoplasty and how to perform abrasion, wedge, block and trochlear chondroplasty techniques. Liberal use of video demonstration will provide the attendee with great insight in how to effectively perform wedge and block trochleoplasty techniques including some tips that you won’t find in the textbooks! Next you will learn how to determine if your patient requires a tibial crest transposition before learning new surgical techniques such as the “temporary door stopper needle” that simplify the procedure for the novice (and ‘not-so-novice’) surgeon.
