Cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) breaks in dogs can be treated by surgical and non-surgical methods.

The investigation of the speciality literature data concerning the surgical treatment options in the management of cranial cruciate ligament breaks in dog, remains in the conditions of an informational avalanche a present concern. The purpose of this study was to analyze additional evidence which have appeared in the literature in the period of 2006 - January 2017 and which advocate with concrete evidences in the favour or disfavour of a particular method of dog’s cranial cruciate ligament breaks treatment.
