Columbus, OH, USA
Hilton Columbus at Easton

The Principles in Small Animal Fracture Management course is designed to provide participants with a basic, fundamental knowledge 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 hands-on laboratory sessions. Techniques that are critical to a successful surgical outcome, such as soft tissue handling and bone grafting are discussed as well as problems of non-unions, infections and technical errors. There will be breakout sessions (Small Group Discussions/Firesides) which supplement the lecture topics which focus on fracture cases and will further examine the importance of preoperative planning and other aspects of clinical decision-making process in small animal surgery. The total patient is considered in terms of pre- and postoperative care and anesthetic management.  Learn More...
