Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome (BOAS)
University of Nottingham
Date: Monday 26th June, 2023 - Monday 26th June, 2023
Start time: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Duration: 8 hour(s)
This one day blended theory and practical course will review the routine and emergency presentations of BOAS, a condition that is increasingly managed in first opinion practice with a huge welfare impact. Objectively determining the severity of the disease to then make appropriate interventions or advise referral with confidence can be challenging for vets and owners, so this will be explored with worked examples. We will then perform modified folding flap palatoplasty, alarplasty combined with alar wing resection and tonsillectomy. The risks of investigating and treating these conditions can be high and temporary tracheostomy and review of complications will also be a focus for the course.
Topics to be covered
Routine and emergency presentation BOAS
Complications arising from BOAS surgery
Surgical procedures for BOAS
Emergency temp trach and postop management
Who is it for?
Veterinary surgeons keen to develop their recognition of clinical BOAS and determine surgical versus non-surgical candidates. Veterinary surgeons wishing to become confident in URT diversion for airway occlusion of the larynx. Veterinary surgeons performing BOAS surgery or refining their current procedural practice.
