COURSE DESCRIPTION

This 2-day practical course has been developed for equine veterinarians who have experience with lameness investigations and provides a critical overview of possible causes of hindlimb lameness, diagnostic anaesthetic strategies and how to interpret nerve and joint block results, via a regio-anatomic approach.   Discussions on the upper hindlimb as a cause of lameness (hip joint, pelvic and sacroiliac problems) and on systemic and intra-articular joint therapies will round the course off.  All speakers/instructors are internationally renowned in the field of lameness diagnostics and spend a significant proportion of their clinical work investigating complex lameness cases.   

In the mornings the following highly-illustrated lectures will be covered by the specialist: 

  • Lameness Examination – Does it matter how it is done?
  • Foot, Pastern and Fetlock – Diagnostics (Imaging & Anaesthetic Techniques)
  • Foot, Pastern and Fetlock – Conditions & Therapy
  • Proximal Metatarsus & Tarsus – Diagnostics (incl. US technique)
  • Proximal Metatarsus & Tarsus – Conditions & Therapy
  • Stifle Joint – Diagnostics
  • Stifle Joint – Conditions & Therapy          
  • Hip Joint, Pelvis & Sacroiliac Region – Diagnostics
  • Hip Joint, Pelvis & Sacroiliac Region – Conditions & Therapy     
  • Conventional systemic & intra-articular Joint Therapies             
  • Systemic & intra-articular Regenerative Therapies        

In the afternoons, 7 hours of practical / case-based sessions will give delegates plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice on live horses and limb specimens in small groups (2 – 4 delegates / ultrasound machine) and to discuss all aspects of Hindlimb Lameness diagnostics and therapeutics with the specialists.   Each delegate will be rotating through the following practical and case-based stations:

  • Different Forms of Lameness Examination                            
  • Regional & Intra-synovial Injection Techniques (incl. ultrasound-guided Techniques)        
  • Ultrasonography of the proximal Metatarsus & Tarsus
  • Imaging Case Discussions
  • Ultrasonography of the Stifle Joint
  • Clinical Cases             

The course fee includes lunches at a restaurant, coffee/tea breaks, a wine and cheese reception, extensive course notes and a certificate of attendance. Delegates can choose to only attend the lectures (= Lectures Only) on this course or can register for the entire course (= Lectures & Practical Sessions).  On the evening of the first day all delegates are invited to attend the course dinner, which costs 40 USD (not included in the course fee; drinks will be charged extra).  Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available.
