Objectives This study aims to report complications and long-term outcomes of combined tibial plateau leveling osteotomy and tibial tuberosity transposition (TPLO-TTT) for treatment of concurrent cranial cruciate ligament rupture and medial patellar luxation (MPL).

Cranial cruciate ligament disease is a common pathological condition in dogs that is often presented in daily clinical practice. Different risk factors for the development of this condition include breed, sex, age, bodyweight and neuter status, as well as different biological and biomechanical mechanisms. 

Objectives The aim of this study was to determine the degree of bone deformities and hindlimb postural abnormalities in a standing position in awake Toy poodles with and without grade 2 medial patellar luxation (MPL) using high speed 320-row computed tomography (CT).
