Tpontis,

Hi, welcome to the board - I found this explanation from the KNEEguru and it covers the TTT procedure and should make it easier for you to understand.



Tibial tuberosity transfer (T.T.T.) - - Posted by admin (The KNEEguru), 25 April 2003

There are a number of procedures in this surgical category. All attempt by different subtleties to correctly realign the patella (kneecap) by dislodging the bony attachment area of the supporting patellar tendon, a couple of inches below the kneecap - i.e. the tibial tubercle:
eg.
Maquet osteotomy
Fulkerson procedure
Elmslie-Trillat procedure
Roux-Goldthwait procedure
Hauser procedure
                                                -KNEEguru


Hope this helped you,  ;)
