2019 ACVS Surgery Summit
Sponsors: SonoSite, Trice Medical
Open to all audiences
Sports injuries occur in working and sporting dogs, but also arise from everyday activities and weekend fun. This one-day advanced laboratory is designed to help you learn more about veterinary sports medicine. Lectures will provide participants with the basic knowledge of how to utilize musculoskeletal diagnostic ultrasound for diagnosing soft tissue injuries, techniques for using diagnostic needle scope for diagnosing intra-articular pathology, and treatment of injuries using intra-articular regenerative medicine injections. Techniques and anatomical landmarks (including iliopsoas, stifle, elbow, shoulder, hip, and carpal/tarsal areas) for musculoskeletal diagnostic ultrasound and diagnostic needle scope will be demonstrated and practiced on cadavers. Techniques for basic treatment of elbow dysplasia will be demonstrated and practiced under needle scope guidance. Participants will learn proper collection techniques for platelet rich plasma and bone marrow aspiration in a clinical setting. Processing techniques will be demonstrated, and participants will practice finding anatomical landmarks and applicable injection sites on cadavers.
