Course description

The aim of the advanced course is to enable application of advanced concepts and techniques for the management of complex fractures in small animals. In the labs, plastic bone models (dry lab) and cadaveric specimens (wet lab) will be used. Each day’s session will conclude with an interactive discussion of the post-operative radiographs.

 

Course objectives

On completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Decision making in challenging articular fracture treatment and minimally invasive fracture fixation techniques
  • Be able to perform articular fracture fixation on plastic bone models and cadaveric specimens
  • Evaluate post-op radiographs of the wet lab and recognize potential pitfalls and technical mistakes

 

Target participants

This is an advanced course suitable for veterinary surgeons with previous experience in small animal orthopedic surgery. Prior attendance at an AO Principles of Fracture Management course is required.
