Simple Fracture Repair Techniques (2 days)

This session will discuss decision-making and the traditional and newest surgical techniques for treating simple
and comminute fractures in dogs and cats. Fracture repair is most successful when performed appropriately the
first time. Success depends on proper choice of a technique to provide adequate stability, while also preserving
the viability of the soft tissues around the fracture. The lab exercises will be on plastic bones.
Type of lab: on plastic bones • Level of Surgeons: designed for General Practitioner
Instructor: Eric Herman, DVM

Extracapsular CrCL repair (1 day)

Diagnosis of CrCL rupture and treatment with Isolock orthopedic suture system. Repair a ligament rupture can be challenging. This workshop will introduce to a new and easy system for treatment of joint disorders as CrCL repair. CrCL rupture is a very common indication, this course want to focus on every phase of CrCL rupture: diagnosis,surgical approach, complications, post-operative care.
