Resumo:  The present study aimed to evaluate a modification of the stabilization method of the tibial tuberosity advancement technique (TTA), originally described for stabilization of the cranial cruciate deficient stifle. Ten adult mongrel dogs with weights ranging from 25 to 30kg were used. After euthanasia, the hind-limbs were divided into two groups: G1 - test (n=10), and G2 - control (n=10) represented by the contra lateral limb. The test group was submitted to the modified TTA technique, stabilized by one shaft screw in craniocaudal position and a titanium cage inserted at the osteotomy site. The position of the patellar tendon, 90° in relation to the tibial plateau, and the correct position of all implants were confirmed radiographically after surgery. Posteriorly, in both groups, limbs were harvested and tibias collected with their respectively patellar tendon insertion preserved for the mechanical resistance test. The fixation of the tibial tuberosity with a shaft screw and titanium cage resulted in resistance compatible with the normal physiological forces transferred to the hind-limbs during locomotion. The biomechanical tests confirmed the viability of the method performed for the tibial tuberosity fixation and support future clinical trials to validate the technique.
