8-11 December 2019

Course description

The AOVET Equine Course 2019 will focus on cadaver and artificial legs in the same time and will make the course even more attractive. This Masters course will focus on very common and very important osteosynthesis techniques, which are done in racehorses as well as in companion animals. This course is for equine surgeons, who are familiar with the basic knowledge and have attended an AOVET Principles course in Equine Fracture Management. There are two main topics, which will be covered in this course. First arthrodesis techniques of the hind and front leg: carpal joints joint and metacarpophalangeal joint. These procedures will be done in plastic bones and cadaveric specimens, with the aim, that not only the technique, but also the approach and the handling of the soft tissue will be taught. This teaching tool offers a lot of advantages and will be a highlight in this course. Moreover we will teach the approach and the fixation of other bones. This AOVET Master course will focus on the approach, the reduction and fixation of these arthrodesis and fixation techniques.
