2019 Equine Advanced Techniques of Fracture Management

Thursday, April 11, 2019 to Sunday, April 14, 2019
Columbus, OH
Hilton Columbus at Easton

The focus of the Advanced Techniques in Equine Fracture Management course is on principles and techniques for reconstruction of complicated fractures in the horse requiring various plating applications. This course builds upon the foundation of fracture repair taught in the Equine Basic Principles course. Lecture topics include management of complicated and long bone fractures as well as external fixation techniques. Time for discussion and radiographic review of complicated cases will be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring radiographs (imported into a Power Point presentation, details to follow) of problem cases to the course. The hands-on laboratory exercises include plate fixation of radial, ulnar and metacarpal fractures as well as fetlock arthrodesis. Faculty for both the lectures and practical labs are experts on fracture fixation and provide the most current information on techniques and management of orthopedic injuries in the equine patient.  Learn More...
