VOI Management of Toy Breed Dogs Stifle Disease Workshop
Toy breeds of dogs often will present with acute onset lameness secondary to complete cranial cruciate ligament rupture. Upon physical exam, the stifle is very unstable with a Grade 2-3 patella luxation aggravated by the presence of excess internal rotational instability due to the CrCl injury. To return the patient to normal function, the CrCl injury must be addressed (stabilized) as well as the patella luxation.
This hands-on surgical workshop will teach attendees intra-articular pathology associated with this condition, diagnostic criteria, an isometric extracapsular procedure that allows joint evaluation and stabilization of the patella luxation and the craniocaudal laxity; how to implement a post-operative rehabilitation program, and common complications and appropriate management of complications should they occur.
This workshop is appropriate for specialist and general practitioners who have an interest in improving their orthopedic knowledge and skills.
