About the course
The SOP™ is a locking plate system for use in veterinary orthopaedics. Locking plates are powerful and versatile implants but the mechanics and methods of application are significantly different from conventional plate systems.
The course will cover locking plate mechanics, case selection, methods of application as well as modes of failure and a review of the extensive published literature on the SOP™ system.
During this session we will cover:
- Fracture repair systems - the flaws and failings
- Locking plate technology
- Features and biomechanics of SOP™
- Where and how to use it
- Half day practical session using a variety of anatomical bones
- Publication reviews
