This session will explore diagnosing and managing the more uncommon and challenging cardiac diseases. We will delve in depth into pericardial diseases, endocarditis and complex congenital cardiac diseases. Also, recognizing myocardial diseases can be challenging when obvious changes in myocardial echogenicity is lacking. We will explore advanced methods of assessing myocardial function. Extensive case discussions will round off this session and give attendees the opportunity to expand their experience on how to apply the theory on horses with challenging cardiac problems.
