The laboratory portion will cover the lateral approach to the stifle, removal of the cruciate remnants, inspection of the meniscus and an overview of the meniscal release. Stabilization will be applied using the lateral suture technique with a focus on proper suture placement using proven isometric points. High strength orthopedic adjustable locking loops (OrthoZip by Everost) will be placed isometrically using Orthozip posts and tightened. All attendees will have their repair critiqued by an experienced surgeon. 6-hour course.
