SUMMARY The first part of this study presents the preoperative planning for circular Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (cTTA), a novel method for the treatment of canine cranial cruciate ligament rupture. The first section of the present article is a brief summary of the condition and the surgical techniques used. cTTA was developed by Massimo Petazzoni, an Italian veterinary surgeon as a modification of Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA). Both correction techniques are based on the same principle, the planning methods are very similar. To the authors’ knowledge, there are only two studies available on cTTA to date, both of which providing little information on preoperative planning. The authors’ planning method is based on the common tangent and tibial plateau slope techniques (normally used for TTA) with modifications, in order to determine the ideal degree of correction more accurately.
