Principles in Small Animal Fracture Management
Date: March 16 - March 19, 2015
Seminars provide the participant with an understanding of bone healing and how it can be favorably influenced through internal fixation of fractures. The scientific principles of fracture repair and their practical application to the clinical situation are presented in lectures and laboratory sessions. The proper use of bone plates, bone screws, intramedullary pins, orthopedic wires, and external fixators to stabilize both shaft and intra-articular fractures are covered in detail. Techniques that are critical to a successful outcome, such as soft tissue handling and bone grafting are discussed. The problems of non-unions, infections, and technical errors are included in the seminars. The total patient is considered in terms of pre and postoperative care and anesthetic management.
Participants should leave this course with the information and experience necessary to apply these techniques to commonly encountered fractures.
