About the course

This two-day highly practical course covers the theory and practical skills of performing ultrasound-guided orthopaedic injections and ultrasound-assisted minimally-invasive surgery covering all regions of the musculoskeletal apparatus of the horse.  Bringing together internationally renowned orthopaedic specialists with a strong interest in this field, this course also provides a critical overview of conventional and biologic treatment modalities for orthopaedic conditions.  This course is suitable for veterinarians from mixed or equine practice who have experience with ultrasonography.  Between both afternoons, 7 hours of practical sessions will give attendees plenty of opportunity to train the different injection techniques on horses and specimens and to get tips and tricks in small groups (2 – 4 attendees per ultrasound machine), under the supervision of the specialists.  Each attendee will rotate through the following practical stations:  Tendon & ligament injections;  Stifle, Hip & Shoulder Joint injections;  Cervical facet joint injections;  Injections of the Back;  Lumbosacral & Sacroiliac injections;  Injections of Bursae & Ultrasound-assisted Surgery.
