Hindlimb Lameness Diagnostics (incl. Objective Gait Analysis) & Therapies

Date/Time

Feb 3, 2017 to Feb 4, 2017
08:30 AM

Description

This two-day practical course has been developed for equine veterinarians who have experience with lameness investigations and provides a critical overview of possible causes of hindlimb lameness, diagnostic anaesthetic strategies and how to interpret nerve and joint block results, via a regio-anatomic approach.   Discussions on the upper hindlimb as a cause of lameness (hip joint, pelvic and sacroiliac problems), objective gait analysis and on systemic and intra-articular joint therapies will round the course off. 

 

In the afternoons, 7 hours of practical and case-based sessions will give attendees plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice on live horses and limb specimens in small groups (2 – 4 people per ultrasound machine) and to discuss all aspects of Hindlimb Lameness diagnostics and therapeutics with the specialists.   Each attendee will be rotating through the following practical stations: Subjective lameness examination; Objective gait analysis;  Nerve & joint blocks (incl. ultrasound-guidance)  ;  Ultrasound of the metatarsus, tarsus or stifle joint (region chosen by each group individually);  2 hours of clinical cases evaluated via subjective and objective gait analysis.
