Principles in Small Animal Fracture Management

Wednesday, September 16, 2020 to Saturday, September 19, 2020
San Diego, CA, USA
Town and Country

The Principles in Small Animal Fracture Management course is designed to provide participants with a basic, fundamental knowledge of bone healing and the favorable impact that internal fixation of fractures can have on it. Lectures and hands-on laboratory sessions will focus on and reinforce the scientific principles of fracture repair as well as techniques critical to successful surgical outcome (soft tissue handling, bone grafting). Problems of non-unions, infections, and technical errors are also covered and discussed. Case-based small group discussions/firesides will supplement the lectures and  focus further on the importance of preoperative planning as a critical part of the clinical decision-making process in small animal surgery. Care of the total patient is emphasized from preoperative care through anesthetic management and postoperative recovery and care. Learn More...
