The TTA (tibial tuberosity advancement) Rapid technique for canine and feline joint surgery is one of the most effective, state-of-the-art approaches to cranial cruciate ligament repair. At the Vetriver Clinic in Laski near Warsaw we successfully perform this tibial osteotomy procedure, which helps injured pets make a complete physical recovery.
The cruciate ligaments, found inside the stifle (or knee) joint in dogs, are one of the key structures ensuring joint stability. Cruciate ligament rupture (tear) is an injury that is common in small- and medium-sized breeds. Such injury, if left untreated, may lead to meniscal damage and joint structure degeneration. This is why it is important to begin treatment immediately after you observe any difficulty in your pet’s locomotion. In this type of injury, conservative (or non-surgical) treatments, such as painkillers, anti-inflammatory drugs, or physiotherapy are not effective. The dog must undergo surgery. Veterinary surgeon Andrzej Małkowski, specialist in orthopedic surgery, recommends TTA Rapid technique.
Joint surgery with the TTA Rapid technique involves shifting the part of the tibia (or shinbone) that is called tibial tuberosity forward and implanting a special titanium cage, which effectively improves force distribution within the joint. This is a much less invasive surgery than the conventional techniques, which involve inserting significantly more implants. The implants are left in the joint permanently, which prevents the necessity of a re-operation. The shorter duration, limited extent, and less invasive nature of surgery with TTA Rapid technique help the animal recover rapidly and regain its former mobility. In comparison with other surgical methods, TTA Rapid minimizes the risk of complications. In addition, the special titanium alloy composing the implanted cage is light, durable, and biocompatible, which is why it causes no interference with normal joint function after surgery.
