OrthoFoam™ MMP Wedge for TTA (1/2 Day am)
An evolution of the TTA procedure for treatment of lameness due to cranial cruciate failure.

The Modified Maquet Procedure (MMP) is an evolution of the TTA procedure for treatment of lameness due to cranial cruciate failure.

The course is in two parts: a lecture based introduction followed by a practical session using synthetic bone models of the stifle, animations and video support material will also be used. The development of the technique, implants and associated instrumentation will be described and a detailed review of surgical technique and clinical outcomes will cover all aspects of MMP.

The benefits of RidgeStop:

  • Titanium, porous wedge replaces existing TTA systems
  • Open-pore titanium encourages bone growth
  • Simplified procedure
  • 20 – 25 minute surgical time with short convalescence
  • Can be used on small, large and giant breeds

During this session we will cover:

  • Biomechanics and theoretical foundations of TTA’s
  • An introduction to MMP and OrthoFoam™
  • Advancement of the 90° patella tendon angle - the controversies
  • How to perform an MMP procedure with confidence
  • Clinical experience and publications
  • Dry bone practical session

By the end of this course delegates should have an understanding of:

  • Why we’ve developed another cruciate sugery technique
  • Biomechanics and theoretical foundations of MMP
  • Case selection for MMP
  • Ability to perform MMP procedure
RidgeStop™ for Patella Luxation (1/2 Day pm)
RidgeStop™ - a novel surgical technique for treatment of patella luxation.

This simple, affordable alternative to sulcoplasty surgery that can be used alone, as the sole treatment for patella luxation, or as an adjunct to re-alignment operations.

The course is in two parts: a lecture based overview of the pathogenesis and treatment selection in patella luxation and a review of current surgical treatment options. This will be followed by an introduction to RidgeStop™, its application and case presentations, before a practical session where delegates will learn to use the RidgeStop™ instrumentation and implants on a synthetic bone model of a stifle.

The benefits of RidgeStop:

  • Quick and simple procedure
  • Minimally traumatic
  • Consistent ridge height achieved
  • Effective barrier enables patella tracking
  • Reversible procedure

During this session we will cover:

  • Overview of patella luxation pathophysiology
  • Diagnosis and current surgical treatments for patella luxation
  • Classifying the degree of luxation and associated deformitie
  • The development and rationale of RidgeStop™
  • The RidgeStop™ procedure
  • Dry bone practical session

By the end of this course delegates should have an understanding of:

  • The aims of sulcoplasty
  • Treatment selection in patella luxation
  • The concept of RidgeStop™
  • Complete confidence to carry out RidgeStop™ procedure
SOP™ for Fracture Repair (Full Day)
SOP™ - Locking Plate System for greater flexibility & more successful surgical outcomes

The SOP™ is a locking plate system for use in veterinary orthopaedics. Locking plates are powerful and versatile implants but the mechanics and methods of application are significantly different from conventional plate systems.

The course will cover locking plate mechanics, case selection, methods of application as well as modes of failure and a review of the extensive published literature on the SOP™ system.

The benefits of SOP™:

  • Available in 3 sizes: (2.0mm, 2.7mm, 3.5mm)
  • Locks using standard cortical screws
  • Can be contoured with 6 degrees of freedom
  • No weak points

During this session we will cover:

  • Fracture repair systems - the flaws and failings
  • Locking plate technology
  • Features and biomechanics of SOP™
  • Where and how to use it
  • Half day practical session using a variety of anatomical bones
  • Publication reviews

By the end of this course delegates should have an understanding of:

  • Features of locking plates
  • Case selection and clinical application of SOP™ system
  • Technical ability to use SOP™ in a range of orthopaedic applications
