Do you ever have difficulty approaching or reducing long bone fractures? We will show you tips how to surgically approach, reduce and repair simple and challenging comminuted fractures using a simple, reliable technique. The TraumaVet Conical Locking Plate System is a novel implant system for use in treating long bone fractures and deformities in small animals. This implant system is easy to use, great for the general practitioner and affordable. The internal fixator shares the convenience of the external fixator without the hassles of postoperative management. During this course participants will familiarize with the implant system through lecture and clinical case presentations. Following lecture and case review, participants will repair fractures and correct simple bone deformities on cadavers and plastic bone models. Postoperative radiographs will be taken to assess the participantâ€™s repair technique. Postoperative management will also be discussed.
