Abstract

The triple tibial osteotomy (TTO) is a technique which combines the features of tibial tuberosity advancement and wedge osteotomy for the treatment of complete and partial cruciate ligament injuries in dogs. In this paper, the technique is described and the results of a prospective study of 64 consecutive cases are presented. TTO provided a satisfactory clinical outcome in a very high percentage of cases. The technique is relatively easy to learn and has a low post-operative complication rate.
