Location 
Hilton Columbus at Easton, 3900 Chagrin Drive, Columbus, Ohio, USA 43219

Description 
The AOVET Course - Principles in Small Animal Fracture Management is designed to provide participants with a basic, fundamental knowledge of bone healing and how it can be favorably influenced through internal fixation of fractures. The scientific principles of fracture repair and their practical application to the clinical situation are presented in lectures and hands-on laboratory sessions. Techniques that are critical to a successful surgical outcome, such as soft tissue handling and bone grafting, are discussed as well as the problems of non-unions, infections and technical errors. There will be breakout sessions (Small Group Discussions / Firesides) which supplement the lecture topics which focus on fracture cases and will further examine the importance of preoperative planning and other aspects of the clinical decision-making process in small animal surgery. The total patient is considered in terms of pre and postoperative care and anesthetic management. Participants should leave this course with the information and experience necessary to apply these principles and techniques to commonly encountered fractures in small animals.
