Panel Discussion - Urinary Emergency Procedures – The Upper Urinary Tract


Panelists:         Dana Clarke   VMD, DACVECC - University of Pennsylvania, USA

Injury to the upper urinary tract occurs most commonly from obstructive urinary calculi, but can also occur secondary to iatrogenic injury, blunt abdominal trauma, penetrating wounds, and neoplastic disease. Urinary leakage or obstruction resulting from these conditions can result in significant morbidity and mortality if left untreated or if treatment is delayed. Additionally, although uncommon, cases of idiopathic renal haematuria can result in severe anaemia and urinary obstruction.

Join our multidisciplinary panel of internationally renowned specialists for an interactive discussion covering surgical and minimally invasive treatment options to successfully treat these conditions in dogs and cats.
