Feline Medicine & Surgery - Orthopaedics, 29 September - 3 October 2014, Torino / Italy - held

Course Master: Dr. Eva Schnabl (AT)
Co-lecturers: Dr. Andreas Gutbrod (CH), Dr. Dorothee Heidenreich (AT)


Newcomers are welcome on this course!

OVERVIEW

This course includes interactive, case oriented classroom teaching in combination with intensive practical work shops. The sessions will be held in the morning between 09:00 and 13:00, during the afternoon between 13:30 and 17:00

In the workshops, we will first repeat basic traumatology on plastic bones before starting to perform surgery on a cat cadaver always together with another participant. Teachers show you first how to do the exercise on a cadaver with the help of video transmission and are afterwards available to support and instruct you during the workshop.

After the course you will have repeated AO principles of fracture management and you will be able to do correct surgical approaches to the bones as well as have a treatment plan for common fractures. Also you will be able to perform some common orthopedic surgeries in the cat.
