3.5 mm DCP 57 mm Overall Length Heavy Duty [TPLO353557]
The tibial plateau levelling operation (TPLO) alters the anatomy of the stifle to moderate the effect of the loss of the cranial cruciate ligament (CCL). The stifle remains unstable to manipulation but is stable as the dog bears weight. It is claimed that following TPLO, degenerative joint disease changes are minimal compared with other CCL procedures. These plates are widely used to repair the tibia following removal of the bone wedge. The shaft holes are compression. The holes in the head are round but large to give a good range of screw angulation. Also used in the TTO procedure.
