OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to report efficacy of a modified tibial plateau levelling osteotomy (TPLO) with double cut and medial crescentic closing wedge osteotomy (TPLO/MCCWO) to treat
Use of a Modified TPLO with Double Cut and Medial Crescentic Closing Wedge Osteotomy to Treat Dogs with Cranial Cruciate Ligament Rupture and Tibial Valgus Deformity
Influence of wire configuration on resistance to fragment distraction of tension bands placed in a greater trochanteric osteotomy model
OBJECTIVE: To determine the influence of wiring configurations on initial tension and resistance to tensile loads in tension band constructs without the contributions of Kirschner-wire stabilization.
STUDY DESIGN: Experimental study.
A Retrospective Study Using the String of Pearls TPLO Locking Plate for the Treatment of Cranial Cruciate Ligament Disease
OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to describe the use of String of Pearls (SOP) tibial plateau levelling osteotomy (TPLO) locking plates for the treatment of cranial cruciate ligament disease
Modified Triple Tibial Osteotomy for Combined Cranial Cruciate Ligament Rupture, Tibial Deformities, or Patellar Luxation
Proximal tibial deformities or patellar luxation may occur concurrently with cranial cruciate ligament rupture.
The objective of this study was to describe the management of those conditions with a modified triple tibial osteotomy (TTO) in nine dogs. Medical records of dogs who underwent a modified TTO were reviewed.

OBJECTIVE: To quantitatively evaluate patellofemoral (PF) kinematics during walking in dogs with cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) deficiency treated by tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO).
STUDY DESIGN: Longitudinal observational study.
Comparison of Outcomes Associated with TPLO and a Modified Technique for Tibial Tuberosity Advancement for the Treatment of CCLD in Dogs: A Randomized Clinical Study
OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to compare outcomes between the tibial plateau levelling osteotomy (TPLO) procedure and a modified tibial tuberosity advancement (TTA Rapid) in dogs with cranial cruciate ligament rupture.
