Location 
Town and Country San Diego, 500 Hotel Circle N, San Diego, California, USA 92108

Description 
The AOVET Course-Principles in Small Animal Fracture Management is designed to provide participants with a basic, fundamental knowledge of bone healing and the favorable impact that internal fixation of fractures can have on it. Lectures and hands-on laboratory sessions will focus on and reinforce the scientific principles of fracture repair as well as techniques critical to a successful surgical outcome (soft tissue handling, bone grafting). Problems of non-unions, infections, or technical errors are also covered and discussed. Case-based small group discussions / firesides will supplement the lectures and focus further on the importance of preoperative planning as a critical part of the clinical decision-making process in small animal surgery. Care of the total patient is emphasized from preoperative care through anesthetic management and postoperative recovery and care. Participants should leave this course with the information and experience necessary to apply these principles and techniques to commonly encountered fractures in small animals.
