Following on from the theory and fundamentals of RidgeStop now is the time to put your knowledge into practice.
Starting with a short Q & A session to answer any outstanding queries you may have, the rest of the day focuses on the practicalities of performing the surgery using both saw bones and cadavers. This allows you to leave the course with full confidence to perform the surgery back at your own practice.

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

  • Diagnosis and current surgical treatments for patella luxation
  • Classifying the degree of luxation and associated deformitie
  • The development and rationale of RidgeStop™

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