Muscle and Tendon injuries - what can we miss on our orthopaedic exam and how can we treat them
This interactive webinar will give the participant an overview of common muscle and tendon injuries. Furthermore, contracture of the semitendinosis, gracilis, infraspinatus and quadriceps muscle will be discussed. Attendees will learn about pathophysiology, clinical symptoms and gait abnormalities caused by those injuries. Therefore, videos of dogs will be shown and together analysed. Conservative and surgical treatment options, possible complications and prognosis will be thought. After the lecture the participant will be able to distinguish gait abnormalities due to tendon and muscle injuries from other causes of lameness.
