AO VET NA Masters Course – Principles of Deformity Correction: Pelvic Limb

The purpose of this course is to provide the participant with the basic fundamentals of understanding how to assess the alignment of the pelvic limb of the dog. These principles will then be applied to a number of conditions that arise from pathologic malalignment of the rear limb, such as high-grade patellar luxation, pes varus, cranial cruciate ligament rupture with excessive tibial slope and malunions. Participants will learn a variety of pre-operative assessments and operative techniques in a highly interactive environment involving lectures, workbook exercises, software-based planning sessions and hands-on
laboratory experiences.

Learning Objectives:

  • Assess the limb alignment of the pelvic limb (both normal and abnormal) in the dog
  • Utilize the determined limb alignment to document and define any malalignment or deformity present
  • Use the map of documented malalignments to develop a pre-surgical plan for correction

  Attendance/completion of an AO VET Principles in Small
Animal Fracture Management course is a prerequisite for the Masters level course since familiarity with instrumentation and techniques will be assumed.
