This course is a lecture/laboratory experience with the objective of providing in depth exposure to common rear limb instability problems veterinary practitioners experience in daily practice. Topics such as cranial cruciate ligament injury, meniscal injury, patella luxation, collateral ligament injury, pre-emptive pain management and rehabilitation will be addressed. Clinical findings, diagnostic and treatment methods will be discussed using a case based format for each topic.

This course will cover the recommended isometric sites for suture placement. There are two suture placement sites recommended for reconstruction of the CCL deficient stifle joint. The site adjacent to the femoral fabellar ligament (F1) to the region of the caudal wall of the long digital extensor groove (T3) is one site. The second site is located at the caudoventral lateral femoral condyle at the level of the distal pole of the fabella (F2); the tibial site is the T3 site as described above. The graph below is a plot of the change in distance between points of attachment.
