VetAdvanceCE: Principles of Fracture Repair
Join us August 28-29, 2019 in Dublin Ireland for VetAdance CE's Principles of Fracture Repair Course with Dr. Brian Beale and Stephen Jones!
This course is designed to provide participants with a basic, fundamental knowledge of bone healing and the favorable impact internal fixation of fractures can have on it.
Lectures and hands-on laboratory sessions (plastic bone) will focus on and reinforce:
- surgical approach
- tips on successful fracture reduction
- repair of simple and challenging comminuted fractures
Participants will have the opportunity to repair fractures using traditional plates, locking plates, pins & tension band, and lag screws. Locking plates and screws (also known as internal fixator) simplify treatment of long bone fractures in small animals. The implant system is easy to use, great for the general practitioner and affordable. The internal fixator shares the convenience of the external fixator without the hassles of postoperative management.
During this course, participants will familiarize themselves with the implants system through lecture and clinical case presentations. Following lecture and case review, participants will repair fractures on plastic bone models. Postoperative management will also be discussed.
VOI provides all equipment and materials for each fracture course.
