A dog, 5 years old, male, 12kg, The left hind limb remained lameness for half a month. He was diagnosed with rupture of cranial cruciate ligamentby the sedation drawer test and the X-ray. We did a TPLO surgery by using BlueSAO TPLO-S6.5mmlocking plate.

Diseases related to the cranial cruciate ligament are the main cause of hindlimb claudication in dogs. TPLO is the most classic and best surgical treatment for cranial cruciate ligament related diseases (compared to TTA surgery). TPLO: (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy) Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy is a biomechanical method for treating rupture of the cranial cruciate ligament in dogs.

Thanks for Dr. Zhou from Chongqing Three Gorges Vocational College bringing us the case.
