  • The soft tissue programme will deal with ear, nose and throat surgery; new technologies in surgery; prostate and perianal surgery.
  • The last stream will be dedicated to video-assisted thoracic surgery and neurosurgery.


Large Animals

The 2019 large animal programme will focus on a number of in-depth aspects of equine surgery. Considering recent scientific advances, the Programme Committee has constructed a programme around the main themes of

  • Laparoscopy in horses anno 2019: instrumentation, techniques and outcomes
  • Traumatic wound management: debridement, reconstruction, promotion of healing and grafting techniques

  • Treating weight bearing cartilage surfaces covering aspects of training, surgical resurfacing and medical cartilage treatments

The in-depth streams will be complemented by several cutting-edge research topics on the development of new techniques and outcomes in equine surgery.
