This category contains the instruments and plates for TPLO Wedge Osteotomy.
The tibial plateau levelling osteotomy (TPLO) alters the anatomy of the stifle to moderate the effect of the loss of the cranial cruciate ligament (CCL).
The stifle remains unstable to manipulation but is stable as the dog bears weight.
It is claimed that following TPLO, degenerative joint disease changes are minimal compared with other CCL procedures.
The closing wedge procedure was the technique which Slocum used to prove the science behind TPLO.
Particularly useful in large dogs and dogs with tibial plateau deformation.
