Scientific Programme

Small Animal Programme Highlights

The main programme will consist of three streams: The orthopaedic stream features an audience interactive session on current evidence to the management of joint disease, and sessions on angular limb deformities, partial amputations, and prosthetics. Further, a panel of human orthopaedic surgeons and diagnostic imaging specialists have been invited to Porto to share their expertise and experience with us.

In soft tissue surgery, a combined session with the VES will be on offer; and internationally acclaimed specialists will walk us through basic and advanced laparoscopic procedures. Finally, the general soft tissue surgery stream will deal with hepatic surgery, updates on the anatomy of portosystemic shunts, indications, and limitations of interventional and open surgical approaches to portosystemic shunts, and updates on cardiac and thoracic surgery.

A neurosurgical session will focus on brain surgery, and will cover aspects such as diagnostics, surgical approaches and management of brain tumours and Chiari-like malformations.


Large Animal Programme Highlights

In depth surgical sessions include Urogenital surgery; Current advances in orthopaedic surgery; Donkeys, Mules and Minis; Surgery of the foal and The Stifle. These will involve our overseas speakers including Dean Richardson, Jim Schumacher, Dwayne Rodgerson, Rolf Embertson as well as many European colleagues and speakers.

Parallel sessions include The Axial skeleton; Surgical management of neoplasia; and Surgery of the foot. To complement the program, there will be Meet the Expert sessions with our overseas speakers while the residents will no doubt benefit from and enjoy a talk by Graham Munroe on stifle arthroscopy. A new session for 2022 is entitled “What you might not find in the textbooks, or things I learned the hard way” with contributions from Dwayne Rogerson, Rolf Embertson, Jim Schumacher, Warren Schofield,  Peter Clegg and Hans Wilderjans.

Four pre congress labs are planned in the days before the official start of the congress and include upper hind limb lameness, upper respiratory surgery, reproductive surgery and an AO Vet course on large animal complications.
