I-Loc® IM Fixator

Wednesday, October 11
1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: White River Ballroom A/B

Sponsored by ACVS Premier Sponsor  

Fees: $725 early / $775 late
Open to all audiences

Participants of this course will have the opportunity to become familiar with the I-Loc® IM Fixator. Principles of interlocking nailing in a variety of long bone fracture configurations as well as correction of angular limb deformities will be described. The evolution of interlocking nail designs with an emphasis on the concept of angle-stable centromedullary fixation will be discussed. Detailed surgical techniques for open and closed fracture fixation using the I-Loc system will be demonstrated, followed by a dry lab with extensive hands-on fracture reduction and fixation on large sized bone models. A report of clinical results and expectations will conclude the course.

Associate Professor, Orthopedic Surgery
Texas A&M University

Dr. Brian Saunders received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Texas A&M University in 2001 and then completed a rotating internship at the University of Tennessee. In 2002 he returned to Texas A&M and enrolled in graduate school at the College of Medicine, obtaining a PhD in 2005 in vascular biology. In 2009 he completed a small animal surgery residency at Texas A&M. Dr. Saunders is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons and is currently an Associate Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Texas A&M University. He is the director of the Canine Comparative Orthopedics and Cellular Therapeutics Lab. The mission of the lab is to advance the field of canine orthopedics and through characterization and development of skeletal stem cell-based therapies for the mutual benefit of veterinary and human orthopedic patients. Dr. Saunders’ clinical interests include arthroscopic joint surgery, minimally invasive fracture repair, angular limb deformities, and joint replacement. His research interests include 3D in vitro models of cell invasion, bone and cartilage formation, canine adult stem cell biology and tissue engineering.
