Especially but not only with small dogs patella luxation issues can come along with a cranial cruciate ligament rupture. Even lower grade patella luxation can become more severe with a torn cruciate ligament.
The rotational stability which is provided by the cruciate ligament does not exist any longer. This may result in a luxating patella which did not show any clinical signs before CCL rupture.
With the new Rita Leibinger patella spacers the patella luxation can be corrected when a cruciate ligament repair surgery has do be done anyways.
With the new Tibia Tappet the tibia tuberosity can easily be transposed after the TTA Rapid cage is inserted into the open partial osteotomy. The Patella Spacers can then easily be placed between the screw holes of the cage and the bone.
Cage and Spacer can be fixed with the 2.4mm TTA Rapid screws.
Identical to the TTA Rapid Cage also the Patella Spacers are made of purest Titanium for best biocompatibility.
