In this highly practical two day course you will improve your skills in surgical stabilisation of common fractures of the fore – and hindlimb. In step by step guided hands on sessions you will gain confidence in repairing fractures of the scapula, humerus, radius, metacarpus, pelvis, femur and tibia by applying pins, plates (DCP and neutralisations plates) and screws. You will use external fixation (KE system) to repair fractures of the radius, tibia, humerus and femur.

By the end of this course delegates should have an understanding of

• Fracture healing
• Patient assessment and fracture planning
• Indications for internal (pins, plates and screws) versus external fixation (linear frames)
• How to fix common fractures of the forelimbs (scapula, humerus, radius/ulna, metacarpus) by internal and external fixation
• How to fix common fractures of the hindlimbs (pelvis, femur, tibia and tarsus) by internal and external fixation
• Dealing with common complications of fracture repair
