COURSE DESCRIPTION

This practical course was designed to provide veterinarians from mixed or equine practice with the theoretical and especially the practical skills to competently examine every joint and tendon sheath of the equine front- and hindlimb ultrasonographically.  A panel of international experts who have dedicated a significant proportion of their careers to musculoskeletal ultrasonography are involved with this course.  The first day will focus on ultrasonography of the frontlimb and on the second day the hindlimb will be covered.

The following highly illustrated lectures (in English, no translation but with German moderation) will be held in the mornings:  

  • How to get the most out of your ultrasound machine
  • Ultrasonographic anatomy and conditions of the Foot & Pastern
  • Fetlock & Digital Flexor Tendon Sheath
  • Carpus & Carpal Sheath
  • Elbow & Shoulder Joint
  • Tarsus, Tarsal Bursae & Sheath
  • Stifle Joint
  • Hip Joint & Pelvis

Between both afternoons, 7 hours of small group sessions (2 – 4 attendees / ultrasound machine) will give attendees plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice on live horses under the supervision of the specialists.  There will furthermore be plenty of time for discussions and each attendee will rotate through the following practical stations:

  • Coffin, Pastern & Fetlock Joints                         
  • Digital Flexor Tendon Sheath                            
  • Carpus & Carpal Sheath
  • Elbow & Shoulder Joints
  • Tarsus, Tarsal Bursae & Sheath 
  • Stifle Joint                                                        

The course fee includes lunches at a restaurant, coffee/tea breaks, a wine & cheese reception, extensive course notes and a certificate of attendance. Attendees can choose to only attend the lectures (= Lectures Only) on this course or can register for the entire course (= Lectures & Practical Sessions).  On Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available due to the highly practical nature of this course.

This course is suitable for RCVS Modules:  B-EP.3;  C-E.6;  C-E.7;  C-E.15;  C-EP.17

Carolin qualified as a veterinary surgeon in 2007 from the University Tierärztliche Hochschule Hannover in Germany. Before moving to the UK, she worked in a busy sports horse practice in Bremen, Germany. In 2008 Carolin joined the team at Rossdales Equine Hospital in Newmarket, UK. After completing the diagnostic imaging internship in 2009 she stayed on as an orthopaedic assistant. Until May 2018, she was working as a senior clinician at Rossdales Diagnostic Centre seeing referral cases from a wide variety of disciplines. Carolin is now heading up the orthopaedics department at the Tierklinik Hochmoor in Gescher-Hochmoor, Germany. Carolin has been invited to speak at a number of national and international meetings. Her special interests are orthopaedics, diagnostic imaging (particularly ultrasonography) and poor performance investigations. 

Henk graduated from Utrecht University, The Netherlands, in 1988. He spent the six years that followed working in two equine clinics in the north and southwest of The Netherlands. In 1994, Henk joined Lingehoeve Diergeneeskunde equine referral hospital in the heart of the Netherlands as equine veterinarian in the ambulatory practice. Since 2000, he has specialised in orthopaedics including lameness exams, pre-purchase exams and diagnostic imaging (radiology, ultrasound, scintygraphy and contrast CT). Henk gained his ISELP certification in 2008.

Roger Smith is Professor of Equine Orthopaedics at the Royal Veterinary College, London, UK. He qualified as a veterinary surgeon from Cambridge University (UK) in 1987, having obtained a First for his undergraduate degree and a Cambridge Blue at swimming. After 2 years in practice, he returned to academia to undertake further clinical training as a Resident in Equine Studies at the Royal Veterinary College. Following his residency, he undertook a 3 year research project culminating in the award of a PhD for his studies on the extracellular matrix of equine tendon.

He remained at the Royal Veterinary College, first as a Lecturer in Equine Surgery, then as Senior Lecturer in Equine Surgery before his appointment as Professor in Equine Orthopaedics in December 2003.

He holds the Diploma of Equine Orthopaedics from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and is a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Specialist in Equine Surgery. He is a Diplomate of the European Colleges of Veterinary Surgeons and Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation, and is also a Large Animal Associate of the European College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging.

In 2016, he was awarded the Fellowship of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons for meritorious contribution to knowledge and was elected to president of the European College of Veterinary Surgeons in July 2017.

He divides his time between running a specialist orthopaedic referral service within the Royal Veterinary College, where he is involved in lameness diagnostics, imaging and orthopaedic surgery, and continuing to direct research into equine tendon disease. His principal research interests are understanding the pathogenesis of tendon disease, diagnostics for tendon and ligament disease, and stem cell therapy for tendons in both horses and humans.

He is married to a medical doctor and has two sons.
