Nowadays a great percentage of equine dental extractions are performed non-surgically but should never be taken lightly as complications like dental fractures, retained root tips, collateral damage etc. easily occur. Over the past 20 years minimally-invasive surgical techniques have been developed and have led to a significant reduction of morbidity and mortality in horses. This highly practical boutique course (max. 18 attendees) was devised for advanced practitioners with surgical experience and surgeons with a good working knowledge/experience in equine dentistry, specifically with dental extractions.To participate in the On-Location Portion, attendees are required to have first worked through the corresponding online Lecture Series An Introduction to Advanced Surgical Dental Extraction Techniques (incl. MITR, MTE & Segmentation)':If you have already purchased the Lecture Series independently of the On-Location Portion, please contact the office on for a voucher code to reduce the price accordingly.The panel of internationally renowned specialists will provide an overview on up-to-date, minimally-invasive surgical dental extraction techniques in horses, including minimally-invasive trephination & repulsion (MITR), minimally-invasive transbuccal extraction (MTE) and dental segmentation. They will furthermore be sharing technical tips and tricks and pearls of wisdom that they have accumulated over the many years of performing equine dental surgery.On-DemandSpeakerTitleDurationHubert SimhoferSurgical Anatomy of the Head40 minNeil TownsendModern Extraction Techniques55 minNeil TownsendMinimally Invasive Transbuccal Extraction (MTE)40 minHubert SimhoferMinimally Invasive Trephination & Repulsion (MITR)40 minLive-StreamedStart Time: 6PM UK / 19:00h Paris / 20:00h HelsinkiDateTime (CET)SpeakerTitleDuration13 October19:00 19:55Neil TownsendAdvanced Imaging of the Head50 min 19:55 20:50Neil TownsendSinoscopic Examination & Surgery50 min20 October19:00 20:05Hubert SimhoferComplications of Dental Extractions60 min 20:05 21:10Hubert SimhoferDental Segmentation60 min27 October19:00 20:05Hubert SimhoferSinus Osteotomy & Advanced Surgical Techniques60 minBetween both days the 9 hours of practical sessions will provide an intimate environment for attendees to develop their surgical skills on equine specimens in true small groups (2-3 vets per specimen; attendee-to-instructor ratio of 4-6/1) at the following stations:Surgical Anatomy of the Head Sinuses Anatomy, Surgical Approaches, Facial Anatomy & Nerve Blocks Minimally Invasive Trephination & Repulsion (MITR) Minimally Invasive Transbuccal Extraction (MTE)Paranasal Sinuses Surgical Techniques Dental Segmentation TechniquesDiagnostic Imaging Case-Discussions The course fee includes, coffee/tea breaks, a wine & cheese reception, lunch at a restaurant and a certificate of attendance.
