Wound Management Workshop
Management of challenging wounds created by trauma or tumour resection are common concerns in small animal practice.
This workshop is designed to improve your decision making and practical skills in wound reconstruction in dogs and cats. The lectures will cover the important principals of wound healing along with factors that can prevent or delay healing. We will discuss strategies to minimise or overcome tension and various options for surgical wound reconstruction including plasties, flaps and grafts.
Practical approaches to challenging wounds such as those close to eyes or on distal limbs will be discussed. The workshop laboratories will provide ample opportunity to learn and master some of these techniques using both dogs and cats. Practicals will include management of defects near the eye, nose and anus.
Various commonly used flaps including the flank and elbow fold flaps, axial pattern flaps and more challenging techniques including lip to lid flap, phalangeal fillet and free skin graft collection and use will also be covered in both lectures and the practical session.
It is highly recommend that all participants bring PPE with additional spares as follows:
Surgical gowns or impervious examination gowns
