Vi Locking Plate Workshop

3rd April 2022, Mantra Legends, Gold Coast QLD, Australia

Presenters: Dr Mark Glyde BVSc MACVSc MVS HDipUTL DipECVS and Dr Lucas Beierer BVSc GradDipEd MVetSurg DACVS-SA Registered Specialist in Small Animal Surgery

Locking bone plates are now being used regularly in Veterinary Orthopaedics. They reflect an evolution in the principles of application, design and biomechanics from the traditional dynamic compression plates. They’d however carry their own specific principles of application and cannot be treated in the same way a traditional DCP is applied. An understanding of the nuances of clinical use is necessary to enhance clinical success.

This workshop is an additional event held after the Vi Symposium 2022. For more information or to register, download the brochure or visit the Symposium website below.
