COURSE DESCRIPTION

Ultrasonography has become a crucially important diagnostic imaging modality in Equine Orthopaedics and most Equine Practitioners nowadays have access to the necessary equipment.  A growing number of equine orthopaedic specialists have furthermore extended the use of ultrasonography creatively to assist with injection techniques and to facilitate minimally invasive surgery.  This practical course has been developed to provide equine and mixed animal practitioners who have experience with ultrasonography, with the theoretical knowledge and the practical skills of performing ultrasound-guided orthopaedic injections and ultrasound-assisted surgical techniques, covering all regions of the musculoskeletal apparatus of the horse.  Whole horses will be used to recreate a scenario as it might be encountered in live horses.  A review of conventional and biologic treatment modalities for orthopaedic conditions will round the course up.

To participate in the On-Location Portion, attendees are required to have first worked through the  corresponding online Lecture Series ‘Ultrasound-Guided Orthopaedic Injection Techniques & Therapies:'

  • If you have already purchased the Lecture Series independently of the On-Location Portion, please contact the office on office@vetpd.com for a voucher code to reduce the price accordingly.

The online Lecture Series addresses the following hot topics via well-illustrated, case-discussions providing a platform for the panel of speakers to share pitfalls, erroneous clinical conclusions and useful tips and tricks:

  • How to get the most out of your ultrasound machine
  • Principles of Ultrasound-Guidance
  • Ultrasound-Guided Tendon & Ligament Injections
  • Ultrasound-Guided Joint Injections of the Limbs  (incl. hip & shoulder joints)
  • Ultrasound-Guided Bursal Injections
  • Cervical Facet Joint Injections
  • Ultrasound-Guided Back Injections
  • Lumbosacral & Sacroiliac Injection Techniques                
  • Ultrasound-Guided Surgery
  • Conventional Systemic & Intra-Articular Joint Therapies              
  • What’s the latest on Regenerative Therapies?

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 sessions will give attendees plenty of opportunity to train the different injection techniques on whole horses and specimens and to get tips and tricks in small groups (2 – 4 attendees per ultrasound machine), under the supervision of the specialists.  Each attendee will rotate through the following practical stations:

  • Tendon & Ligament Injections                                                       
  • US-guided Upper Limb Joint Injections                                     
  • US-guided Back Injections – Interspinous & Articular Facet Joint Injections
  • Cervical Facet Joint Injections                                                                         
  • Lumbosacral & Sacroiliac Injection Techniques                
  • US-guided Navicular Bursa Injections & Surgical Techniques                                                           

The course fee includes, coffee/tea breaks, a wine & cheese reception, lunch at a restaurant and a certificate of attendance. To participate in the On-Location Case-Discussions & Practical Sessions, attendees are required to have first worked through the Lecture Series (included in the price).  Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available due to the highly practical nature of this course.
