Fri 20  - Sat 21 April 2018 - A 2-Day Practical Course

Please be aware that there are only a limited number of BEVA spaces available.


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), objective gait analysis 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 in English (no translation, but with Spanish moderation): 

  • 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
  • Objective Gait Analysis – Principles & Clinical Applications
  • 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 and case-based sessions will give attendees plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice on live horses and limb specimens in small groups (2 – 4 attendees per ultrasound machine) and to discuss all aspects of Hindlimb Lameness diagnostics and therapeutics with the specialists.   Each attendee will be rotating through the following practical and case-based stations:

  • Subjective Lameness Examination         
  • Objective Gait Analysis                 
  • Nerve & Joint Blocks (incl. ultrasound-guidance) 
  • Ultrasound of the Metatarsus, Tarsus or Stifle Joint – Region chosen by each group individually
  • 2 hours of clinical cases evaluated via subjective and objective gait analysis                             

The course fee includes coffee/tea breaks, lunches, a wine & cheese reception, extensive course notes and a certificate of attendance. Attendees 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 attendees are invited to attend the wine & cheese reception. Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available.

This course is suitable for RCVS Modules:  B-EP.3;  C-E.4;  C-E.5;  C-E.6;  C-E.7;  C-E.15;  C-EP.17
