  • Description

    Brachycephalic breeds are now some of the most common breeds we see in general practice. This two-day, highly practical, cadaver-based course covers not only the BOAS surgical procedures but also the other challenging conditions and corrective surgeries that are commonly associated with these breeds.

    Starting with pre-surgical assessment and stabilisation, the day will move on to the specific surgical procedures and how to identify what is required in each case to provide clinical improvement and a better quality of life for these patients. The majority of the two days will be spent in cadaver-based practical sessions allowing delegates the time to practice these surgical procedures under the expert guidance of this eminent surgical lecturer.

    Topics to be covered include:

    • Pre-operative assessment and stabilisation
    • BOAS surgeries – aplasty, palatoplasty, laryngeal sacculectomy, rhinoplasty
    • Laryngeal and tracheal surgeries – including arytenoid lateralisation and tracheostomy
    • Ear Surgery – total ear canal ablation (TECA)
    • Skin fold resection surgery
    • Hiatal hernia repair
    • Emergency interventions
    • Post–operative care and the recovery period.
