This practical course has been developed to provide equine and mixed animal practitioners who have experience with ultrasonography, with the theoretical knowledge and the practical skills of performing ultrasound-guided orthopaedic injections and ultrasound-assisted surgical techniques, covering all regions of the musculoskeletal apparatus of the horse. Whole horses will be used to recreate a scenario as it might be encountered in live horses. A review of conventional and biologic treatment modalities for orthopaedic conditions will round the course up.To participate in the On-Location Portion, attendees are required to have first worked through the corresponding online Lecture Series Ultrasound-Guided Orthopaedic Injection Techniques & Therapies:'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 online Lecture Series addresses the following hot topics via well-illustrated, case-discussions providing a platform for the panel of speakers to share pitfalls, erroneous clinical conclusions and useful tips and tricks:How to get the most out of your ultrasound machinePrinciples of Ultrasound-GuidanceUltrasound-Guided Tendon & Ligament InjectionsUltrasound-Guided Joint Injections of the Limbs (incl. hip & shoulder joints)Ultrasound-Guided Bursal InjectionsCervical Facet Joint InjectionsUltrasound-Guided Back InjectionsLumbosacral & Sacroiliac Injection Techniques Ultrasound-Guided SurgeryConventional Systemic & Intra-Articular Joint Therapies Whats the latest on Regenerative Therapies?Day 1 starts at 15:00h with 3 hours of interactive Case-Discussions, Q&A which will give attendees the unique opportunity to apply what they have learned during Lecture Series in discussion with the world-renowned specialists.
