Hindlimb Lameness Diagnostics (incl. Objective Gait Analysis)

This 2-day practical course has been developed for equine veterinarians who have experience with lameness investigations and provides a critical overview of possible causes of hindlimb lameness, diagnostic anaesthetic strategies and how to interpret nerve and joint block results, via a regio-anatomic approach. Discussions on the upper hindlimb as a cause of lameness (hip joint, pelvic and sacroiliac problems), objective gait analysis and on systemic and intra-articular joint therapies will round the course off. All speakers/instructors are internationally renowned in the field of lameness diagnostics and spend a significant proportion of their clinical work investigating complex lameness cases. In the mornings the following highly-illustrated lectures will be covered by the specialist : Lameness Examination – Does it matter how it is done? Foot, Pastern and Fetlock – Diagnostics (Imaging & Anaesthetic Techniques) Foot, Pastern and Fetlock – Conditions & Therapy Proximal Metatarsus & Tarsus – Diagnostics (incl.



US technique) Proximal Metatarsus & Tarsus – Conditions & Therapy Objective Gait Analysis – Principles & Clinical Applications Stifle Joint – Diagnostics Stifle Joint – Conditions & Therapy Hip Joint, Pelvis & Sacroiliac Region – Diagnostics Hip Joint, Pelvis & Sacroiliac Region – Conditions & Therapy Conventional systemic & intra-articular Joint Therapies Systemic & intra-articular Regenerative Therapies In the afternoons, 7 hours of practical and case-based sessions will give attendees plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice on live horses and limb specimens in small groups (2 – 4 attendees per ultrasound machine) and to discuss all aspects of Hindlimb Lameness diagnostics and therapeutics with the specialists.


Each attendee will be rotating through the following practical and case-based stations: Subjective Lameness Examination Objective Gait Analysis Nerve & Joint Blocks (incl. ultrasound-guidance) Ultrasound of the Metatarsus, Tarsus or Stifle Joint – Region chosen by each group individually 2 hours of clinical cases evaluated via subjective and objective gait analysis The course fee includes coffee/tea breaks, lunches, a wine & cheese reception, extensive course notes and a certificate of attendance.
