Abstract

  Cranial cruciate ligament deficiency (CCLd) is the most common cause of hindlimb lameness in dogs leading to stifling joint instability, inflammation, pain, lameness and osteoarthritis development. In the last decade, different surgical procedures have been described for treating CCLd in dogs.

  Tibial plateau levelling osteotomy (TPLO) is one of the most common surgical techniques used, which aims to neutralize the cranial tibial thrust, achieving a caudal displacement of the tibial plateau, levelling the slope up to get a perpendicular angle between the tibial plateau and the patellar tendon, without restoring the cranial cruciate ligament.
