Equine Frontlimb Lameness (incl. Objective Gait Analysis) – A 2-Day Practical Course
Nov 10, 2017 to Nov 11, 2017
8:30 AM until 6:00 PM
This two-day practical course was developed for equine practitioners experienced with lameness investigations and provides a critical overview of possible causes of frontlimb lameness, diagnostic anesthesia strategies and how to interpret nerve and joint block results. Discussions on foot conformation, objective gait analysis, advanced imaging modalities, regenerative therapies and multi-site/limb lamenesses will round the course off. All speakers/instructors are internationally renowned in the field of lameness diagnostics spending a significant proportion of their clinical work investigating complex lameness cases.
In the mornings the following highly-illustrated lectures will be covered by the specialist:
- Lameness Examination – Is there only one approach?
- Objective Gait Analysis – Principles & Clinical Applications
- Interpretation of Frontlimb Diagnostic Anesthesia
- Foot Conformation – Should we aim for the ideal foot?
- Conditions of the Foot & Pastern
- Conditions of the Suspensory Apparatus & Digital Flexor Tendon Sheath
- Advanced Imaging Modalities – Is it the answer?
- Conditions of the Carpus & Upper Frontlimb
- Update on Regenerative Therapies for Tendon/Ligament Injuries
- Challenging Cases – How to deal with multi-site/limb lameness cases?
In the afternoons, 7 hours of practical / case-based sessions will give attendees plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice on live horses and limb specimens in small groups (2 – 4 attendees / ultrasound machine) and to discuss all aspects of Frontlimb Lameness diagnostics and therapeutics with the specialists. Each attendee will be rotating through the following practical and case-based stations:
- Different Forms of Subjective Lameness Examination
