Annual Scientific Meeting, July 8-10 2021, Antwerp, Belgium

Small Animal Programme

The Small Animal orthopaedic programme features three main streams:

Delegates will have the opportunity to learn about the latest topics in Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation from specialists including Pilar LaFuente, Lowri Davies and Rico Vannini. Sessions on current strategies for managing critical bone and cartilage defects, and dealing with complications after common elbow, stifle and hip procedures will be presented by colleagues including Ulrich Rytz, Peter Boettcher and Loic Dejardin.

The Small Animal soft tissue programme is presented in collaboration with the VSSO:

Attendees will have the opportunity to hear well-known specialists Julius Liptak, Paolo Buracco and Laurent Findji talk about the latest in the surgical treatment of tumors, and the role of new adjunctive therapeutic options. The programme also features a stream in skin and reconstructive surgery where participants can have their reconstructive cases discussed "live" by experts such as Bryden Stanley and Jolle Kirpensteijn. The management and prevention of surgical site infections is also highlighted and will be presented by Fergus Allerton. Further there will be a stream on pain scoring and local analgesia and one on updates on minimally invasive techniques such as coils and stents.

We are currently working on the details of the online congress programme. A more detailed programme will be communicated soon.


The list of accepted abstracts will be published in March 2021.
