Principles of Fracture Repair: Hands-on Long Bone Repair — March 10 - 12, 2021

Do have difficulty approaching or reducing long bone fractures? Are you interested in learning simple techniques designed for the general practitioner to repair the most commonly fractures seen in dogs and cats?  This laboratory is the one for you! We will teach reliable techniques and give valuable practical tips useful in repairing simple and more challenging comminuted fractures of long bones. New implant designs have made fracture repair much more simple and affordable. In addition, postoperative management of patients has also been simplified and complications are rare if the principles of fracture repair are followed. This course will familiarize participants with fracture repair techniques through lecture and clinical case presentations. Following lecture and case review, participants will repair fractures on plastic bone models and cadavers. Postoperative radiographs will be taken to evaluate the participants' repair technique.

Advanced Fracture Repair: Comminuted Stabilization and Management — March 23 - 25, 2021

Are you comfortable with the repair of simple fractures? Are you looking to move to the next level and take on more challenging fracture repair? If so, this is the course for you. This 3-day course will teach techniques used to repair more difficult comminuted fractures of the humerus, radius, femur, and tibia. Fractures of the metaphysis and diaphysis will be addressed. This course will also teach the principles of articular fracture repair. Fractures involving the joint surface require anatomic reduction and rigid stabilization to reduce the chance of osteoarthritis and produce a positive outcome. Participants will learn techniques used to repair humeral condylar fractures and femoral head fractures. This course will familiarize participants with advanced fracture repair techniques through lecture and clinical case presentations. Following the lecture and case review, participants will repair fractures on plastic bone models and cadavers. Postoperative radiographs will be taken to evaluate the participants’ repair technique.
