This two day strongly practical cadaver based course will introduce delegates to the basic surgical and orthopaedic principles of management of some of the most common fractures affecting the forelimb and hindlimb in dogs and cats. Each practical cadaver session will be complemented by a theoretical introduction and review of the surgical considerations required in order to achieve successful fracture repairs. Day one will cover transverse radius and ulnar shaft fractures, lateral condylar fractures of the humerus and olecranon fractures. Day two will cover supracondylar fracture of the distal femur, tibial tuberosity fracture, femoral shaft fracture repair, and comminuted or butterfly fragment tibial fracture.

Topics to be covered include:
  • Surgical approaches
  • Fracture reduction techniques
  • Useful tips and techniques required for dealing with fractures of the forelimb and hindlimb that are commonly encountered in small animal practice

"It was a well constructed, highly practical course and exactly the sort of cpd I find useful. Georg was obviously very knowledgable and able to articulate and demonstrate a huge number of options with each of the fractures we created. I thoroughly enjoyed my time. Thank you. This is one of the best cpd courses I have ever attended." April 2018
