Small Animal

Orthopedic Complications: Long Bone

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Sponsored By ACVS Educational Partner 

Increasing experience with application of interlocking nail and locking plate for fracture management has predictably disclosed patterns of complication, some of which are common to other implant systems, and some novel. Practical recommendations to avoid complication and the challenge of malunion vs nonunion revision will be addressed with specific regard to the femur. The seminar will provide insight into surgical planning, 3-D modeling, operative technique, and formulation of prognosis.
