Extracapsular Stabilization for CCL Rupture

Orange, CA Dec 4, 2020

Extracapsular Stabilization for CCL Rupture


Cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) rupture is the most common orthopedic disease in dogs. Rupture of the CCL leads to persistent instability, which translates into persistent pain and discomfort, osteoarthritis, meniscal pathology, muscle atrophy, and compensatory changes to other limbs. Many options exist to surgically stabilize the joint to minimize long-term pain and development of osteoarthritis. Come learn from veterinary orthopedic experts and practice extracapsular techniques to stabilize the stifle after CCL rupture. Emphasis will be placed on correct quasi-isometric placement of fixation points as well as meniscal decision-making.  


You will review and discuss all aspects of cruciate ligament injury including:

  • Causes and predisposition
  • Ideal approach to the stifle joint
  • Partial meniscectomy and meniscal release
  • Extracapsular surgical procedure utilizing quasi-isometric points
  • How to minimize complications
  • Optimal postoperative patient care

Participants may find it helpful to review pertinent anatomy and orthopedic instrumentation before attending this course.
