Fees: Fees: $850 early / $950 late

CORA based leveling osteotomy is a procedure where the tibial plateau slope is modified by centering the saw blade (ACA) at the location of the CORA (center of rotation of angulation). The osteotomy is stabilized with a Veterinary Orthopedic Implant (V.O.I.) specially designed locking plate and counter-sink compression screw. The laboratory will detail surgical planning, application in simulated bone, management of complications, and long-term outcome. In this laboratory participants will familiarize themselves with the CBLO procedure as performed with advanced techniques including small breed application, concurrent patella luxation correction, and double cut techniques for excessive tibial angles (eTPA), and cases with open proximal tibial growth plates.
