Lab Opportunities During Austin Vet!

 

Looking for something extra? Our exciting, small-scale labs offer hands-on experience, taught by industry professionals who will give you personal feedback. This is the moment to practice your skills or learn new ones, and ask all the questions you've always wanted to ask.

"It was an honor to attend the Small Animal Soft Tissue Surgical Principles Wet Lab at New York Vet. I got a chance to learn new and brush up on the old techniques of wound closure, cystotomy, gastrotomy, and enterotomy from some of the best in class Boarded Surgeons and Surgery Professors around North America. The Johnson & Johnson lab made me register for the next year’s show on the same day!"

Take a Look at Our 2022 Labs!

Labs for Austin Vet 2023 will be announced soon!

Stifle Disease: Cranial Cruciate Ligament Deficiency Including Practical Workshop

MMP is a surgical technique for treatment of lameness caused by failure of the cranial cruciate ligament (CCL). Named after a human surgeon, Dr. P Maquet, the MMP is a form of TTA and uses a pure titanium foam wedge to advance and fix the tuberosity. The MMP was developed to make Tibial Osteotomy surgery more widely available to surgeons. The MMP procedure allows for short surgery time, short convalescence, can be more cost effective and outcomes are similar to those of TPLO. 

Attendees will review: 

  • Biomechanics and theoretical foundations of TTA’s
  • An introduction to MMP and OrthoFoam™ 
  • Advancement of the 90° patella tendon angle – the controversies • How to perform an MMP procedure with confidence  
  • Clinical experience and publications
  • Dry bone practical session

This lab is available to veterinarians only

Stifle Disease: Patellar Luxation Including Practical Workshop

RidgeStop™ is employed as an adjunct procedure when re-alignment operations such as tibial tuberosity transposition or much less commonly distal femoral ostectomy have been performed. The aim of the surgery is to make sure that the patellar slides up and down within its groove, without slipping to one side or the other; the cause of discomfort and lameness. Unlike other procedures for patellar luxation where the joint surface has to be cut, this is a much less traumatic procedure, as well as being more effective

Attendees will review: 

  • Overview of patella luxation Workshop pathophysiology
  • Diagnosis and current surgical treatments for patella luxation
  • Classifying the degree of luxation and associated deformities
  • The development and rationale of RidgeStop™
  • The RidgeStop™ procedure
  • Dry bone practical session
