MMP is a surgical technique for treatment of lameness caused by failure of the cranial cruciate ligament (CCL). Named after a human surgeon, Dr. P Maquet, the MMP is a form of TTA and uses a pure titanium foam wedge to advance and fix the tuberosity. The MMP was developed to make Tibial Osteotomy surgery more widely available to surgeons. The MMP procedure allows for short surgery time, short convalescence, can be more cost effective and outcomes are similar to those of TPLO.
Attendees will review:
- Biomechanics and theoretical foundations of TTA’s
- An introduction to MMP and OrthoFoam™
