Trochlear block recession was performed on all the dogs. The additional procedures including lateral retinacular desmotomy, tibial derotation, imbrication of medial retinaculum, and/or proximal tube realignment. Medial transposition of the tibial tuberosity was additionally done in one dog. Recurrent right LPL was found and corrected in one leg of the second dog.
