Aug. 17 – TTA-2; SOLD OUT
Tibial Tuberosity Advancement & TTA-2
Since 2004, KYON’s TTA procedure has become a significant addition to the canine cranial cruciate repair armamentarium, performed in >100,000 procedures by more than 1,000 surgeons. Throughout the 10 years of clinical experience, KYON continued to refine and improve TTA preoperative planning, surgical technique, implants and instruments.
In 2012, KYON in collaboration with Dr. Joop Hopmans began in vitro testing and, soon after, a safety and efficacy study to explore the next step in the TTA evolution, TTA-2*. TTA-2 consists of an incomplete osteotomy, performed with the assistance of a novel hinged saw guide, and a new cage, designed to counteract both shear and compression forces. The simplified surgical technique preserves the periosteum on the medial aspect of the tibial tuberosity, eliminates stress risers, shortens the surgery time, and reduces the implant inventory. In vitro and in vivo studies have demonstrated that the saw guide and surgical planning for its use, combined with the use of a Fine Touch Osteotomy Distractor minimizes the risk of intraoperative or early postoperative fracture of the tuberosity.
With 2 years of clinical experience and over a decades’ experience in the basic mechanical and biological principles behind tibial tuberosity advancement as a geometry modifying procedure, TTA-2 will be commercially available in May 2014. TTA-2 has the potential to reduce iatrogenic trauma, reduce the risk of infection, accelerate the incorporation of the implant into the bone and shorten the surgery time, thus providing surgeons and their patients with tangible benefits. A reduced implant range and streamlined instrumentation provide considerable savings in inventory and maintenance expenses. Implants are packaged sterile for surgical convenience.
