Equine Orthopaedic Developments and Distal Limb Casting Techniques and Benefits

13 Nov 2018 17:00 - 21:00

This North of England regional meeting will provide an overview of the diagnosis and treatment of a number of significant musculoskeletal problems commonly encountered in equine practice. In addition to providing a step by step approach to the management of these issues, the course will also cover new and emerging approaches to old problems. A “how to” section on the use of casts for the management of wounds will provide practitioners with techniques applicable to the types of traumatic wounds that we all encounter regularly when treating horses.

Key Learning Objectives:
• Delegates will understand the indications and techniques for casting for the treatment of traumatic wounds
• Be able to investigate, diagnose, choose an appropriate treatment modality for, and accurately prognosticate, for the treatment of impingement of the dorsal spinous processes
• Become familiar with new and emerging treatments for orthopaedic problems in horses
• Understand the pathogenesis, diagnostic techniques and treatment options for proximal suspensory desmitis and be able to provide advice on athletic outcome following treatment
