    Prof. Dr. Anton Fürst is a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Surgeons (ECVS) and the head of the Equine Hospital of the Vetsuisse Faculty, University of Zurich. This department offers an overall high caseload on clinical patients every year. The technical expertise and interests of Dr. Fürst cover all fields of equine surgery, and he has already performed several studies about kicking injuries, first aid and osteochondrosis in horses. Currently, his main research focuses on equine orthopaedics. In particular, he is interested in the treatment of subchondral cystic lesions (SCLs) in horses. Dr. Fürst strives for new treatment strategies to improve the healing of SCLs. Therefore he investigated the etiology and pathogenesis of SCLs and is developing new, biologically active filling materials to be injected in the cystic cavity after debridement. After in vitro characterization and proof of efficacy of new materials, the clinical caseload offers future opportunities for their clinical application.
