Abstract
Objective: To (1) describe a modified technique for tibial tuberosity advancement (TTA) in dogs with cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) rupture and (2) report short term outcome and complications. Study Design: Prospective clinical study. Animals: Dogs with unilateral CCL rupture (n=50). Methods: TTA was performed with a novel implant to achieve advancement of the tibial crest. The technical protocol, specific implants and instrumentation, and the short term outcome are described. Results: Various breeds (mean±SD weight, 31.9±13.3 kg) were included. Mean age at treatment was 64±30.6 months. Minor complications occurred in 30% and major complications in 4% of the cases. Forty‐eight (96%) dogs had a good to excellent outcome 3 months after surgery. Conclusion: The modified technique is a viable alternative to other osteotomy techniques.
