CORA based leveling osteotomy is a unique procedure which combines the advantages of Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy and Tibial Tuberoisty Advancement. The osteotomy is centered on the CORA which achieve alignment of the proximal anatomic axis and distal anatomic axis in contrast to a TPLO which results in caudal shift of the proximal anatomic axis and secondary translation. The TPA/PTA angle lies between 88 degrees and 90 degrees. The osteotomy is stabilized with a TraumaVet specially designed locking plate. Additional advantages of the CBLO include: ease of surgical planning and technique, excellent long term functional results, normal long term appearance of articular cartilage, rapid healing of the osteotomy (6-7 weeks), ability to apply osteotomy in juvenile patients, and application in cases with excessive slope. The course will detail surgical planning, application in simulated bone and cadaver bone, management of complications, and long term outcome.
This course is RACE approved for 16 hours continuing education credit.
