Cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) breaks in dogs can be treated by surgical and non-surgical methods. Choice of the treatment method of cranial cruciate ligament rupture in dog continues to be a real problem for veterinarian clinicians. This topic has been the subject of many studies. Investigation of the speciality literature data concerning the surgical treatment options in the management of cranial cruciate ligament injuries) in dogs, 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 dogs’ cranial cruciate ligament injuries treatment. Analysis of online searches using PubMed engine in 403 articles suggest that the data analyzed do not allow accurate comparisons between different treatment procedures of cranial cruciate ligament deficiency in dogs and did not show significant differences nor major changes when compared to previous reports (from 1963 to 2005). New long-term clinical studies must be designed and further biomechanical and kinematic analyses are required to determine the optimal technique, and whether these procedures are superior to other stabilization methods.
