We would like to reassure you that if you register for one of our upcoming courses, you will or can opt to receive a full refund if the course/event should have to be postponed or cancelled due to restrictions associated with Covid-19. We will of course continue to closely monitor developments and government advice, as well as adhering to routine social distancing and anti-viral procedures on the courses.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Over the past 20 years a plethora of new therapies have made an appearance in the field of equine orthopaedics.  For busy equine practitioners who don’t have the time to regularly dive into the current literature it can be difficult to establish which ones of these therapies are scientifically sound and have been found to be efficacious via clinical studies.  It is furthermore very difficult to find any literature where authors actually exactly describe what therapeutic regimen they use.

To participate in the On-Location Portion, attendees are required to have first taken part in the  corresponding online Lecture Series ‘Advances in Equine Orthopedic Therapies':

  • If you have not yet purchased the corresponding Lecture Series associated with the On-Location Portion, please purchase the Lecture Series as an ‘Extra’ during the registration process at a 10% discount .
  • If you have already purchased the Lecture Series independently of the On-Location Portion, please proceed to register without adding the Lecture Series as an ‘Extra’ during the registration process.

The following orthopaedic therapies will be discussed via an evidence-based approach and the speakers will also elaborate on their personal views on these modalities and how they use them as part of their daily clinical routine: 

Start Time: 7PM EST / 6PM CDT / 5PM MDT / 4PM PDT

Day 1 starts at 15:00h with 3 hours of interactive Case-Discussions, Q&A which will give attendees the unique opportunity to apply what they have learned during Lecture Series in discussion with the world-renowned specialists.  This will then be followed by the obligatory Wine & Cheese Reception allowing for attendees to socialise with colleagues and the speakers/instructors.

On the second day, 7 hours of practical and case-based sessions will allow attendees to further their practical and clinical decision making skills on equine specimens in small groups (2 attendees per specimen) and to further discuss the above topics with the specialists.   Each attendee will rotate through the following practical sessions:

  • Alcohol-facilitated Ankylosis of the Distal Tarsal Joints (incl. contrast arthrography)
  • Intra-synovial Injection Techniques of the Mid-Distal Limb (incl. Ultrasound-guidance)   
  • Ultrasound-guided Tendon & Ligament Injections
