Do have difficulty approaching or reducing long bone fractures? Are you interested in learning simple techniques designed for the general practitioner to repair the most commonly fractures seen in dogs and cats?  This laboratory is the one for you! We will teach reliable techniques and give valuable practical tips useful in repairing simple and more challenging comminuted fractures of long bones. New implant designs have made fracture repair much more simple and affordable. In addition, postoperative management of patients has also been simplified and complications are rare if the principles of fracture repair are followed. This course will familiarize participants with fracture repair techniques through lecture and clinical case presentations. Following lecture and case review, participants will repair fractures on plastic bone models and cadavers. Postoperative radiographs will be taken to evaluate the participants' repair technique.

 

Hands-on training led by expert instructors equals enhanced proficiency and improved surgical skills. Build your confidence with accuracy and efficiency:

  • Update their knowledge on practical surgical techniques and procedures
  • Increase confidence levels when performing various soft tissue and orthopedic surgery procedures.
  • Gain a better knowledge of the regional anatomy related to each surgical procedure
  • Better understand how to perform each surgical technique through extensive use of video case examples coupled with hands-on laboratory practice
  • Realize that many soft tissue and orthopedic surgery procedures are possible to perform in practice
