Join us to review the canine mast cell tumours from a practical perspective and discuss what is new in their management. This webinar will focus on what has changed in our knowledge of the disease in recent years including diagnosis, staging and treatment.

Metacarpal, Metatarsal fracture repair
with Dr. Arthur House
STELFONTA is a ground-breaking new treatment for canine mast cell tumours (MCTs). In this webinar Dr Pam Jones will introduce STELFONTA (tigilanol tiglate), an innovative option for intratumoral treatment of canine mast cell tumours, review the efficacy data behind this new product and demonstrate how this highly innovative treatment can be used to provide a high tumour elimination rate, wound healing and a speedy return to a good quality of life for the pet. STELFONTA® contains tigilanol tiglate, a biologically active pharmaceutical compound extracted from the seed of the native Australian blushwood (Fontainea picrosperma) tree found in the North Queensland rainforest. Tigilanol tiglate was discovered and developed by Australian company QBiotics and has been extensively researched over many years.

Day 3 – Fracture fixation – how to avoid the dreaded revision surgery
with Dr. Arthur House
The best option for both the pet, owner and surgeon is to get a fracture to heal well on the first attempt. Most complications are due to poor decision making rather than poor technique. This webinar will highlight the management and more importantly the avoidance of the most common types of fracture complications. Specific types and locations of fractures, which are associated with an increased risk of failure, will be discussed with strategies to avoid this occurring. The various implant systems (pins, ESF, plates and locking plates), available will also be described. The advantages and disadvantages of each implant system and the guidelines for application of each system will be highlighted. The relevance of how this relates to the risk of complications will discussed. Using a case-based approach from over 10 years of specialist orthopaedic practice, various types of complications will be demonstrated as well as strategies for revision surgery. By the end of this webinar the delegate will have a good understanding of why some complications occur and therefore how best to avoid them.
