Hip dislocation is the most common joint luxation in canines and currently lacks an easy and reliable method of correction. The purpose of this project was to reengineer the current procedure to create a new system with an increased success rate and easier instrumentation. The final design consisted of a four part system which increased the success rate by decreasing the causes of suture breakage through a redesigned implant, improved aiming guide, and the use of a novel suture sheath.
