For Practitioners by Practitioners


LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT Dear Colleagues, Welcome again as we begin another season of excellent and compelling continuing education! The Florida Association of Equine Practitioners (FAEP) Council and Florida Veterinary Medical Association (FVMA) are thrilled to once again host the Ocala Equine Conference (OEC) at the Hilton Ocala. This year, the 56th Annual OEC will be held from February 1-3, 2019. The Friday prior to the event there will be a comprehensive ultrasound wet lab session with anatomical stations that will be helpful for both the experienced and novice practitioner. OEC 2019 will also feature a demonstration at the lab of an alternative approach to obtaining CSF in the sedated and standing horse by Dr. Sally DeNotta. As 2018 wraps up, we had another successful Promoting Excellence Symposium in Naples with many outstanding speakers. This year featured the ever-popular rehabilitation track. This component of managing the sport horse has evolved over the years and has always provided thought-provoking information for us to ponder, and this year was no different at PES 2018. In August, FAEP, with prominent equine practices in Ocala, put on a successful Student Appreciation Day in conjunction with the University of Florida. This provides the equine student with practical hands-on experience during a full day of laboratories. As we look ahead to 2019, it promises to be another year of quality events, which FAEP is excited to host for you. Of course, we would not be able to provide you with the exceptional speakers and laboratory instructors that we do without the support from our educational partners and sponsors. We thank them for all their continued support and look forward to maintaining those solid relationships for the future. We look forward to seeing you in Ocala in February 2019! Ruth-Anne Richter BSc (Hon), DVM, MS FAEP Council President

COMPREHENSIVE EQUINE ULTRASOUND WET LAB Distinguished instructors provide an in-depth overview of imaging in the following anatomical areas:

STATION 1: PASTERN AND FOOT

RUTH-ANNE RICHTER BSc (Hon), DVM, MS

With the widespread use of MRI for the diagnosis of soft tissue injuries in horses, some equine lameness diagnosticians have forgotten the value of ultrasonographic examination of the pastern and foot. Although the complex anatomy of this region can be intimidating when interpreting ultrasonographic abnormalities, a well-trained ultrasonographer can gather a vast amount of information regarding the soft tissue structures in the pastern and, to a lesser degree, in the foot. In this wet lab, we will review pertinent anatomy of the pastern and foot. You will get hands-on experience performing a structured, detailed examination of the pastern and foot. Emphasis will be placed on the visualization of anatomic structures that are most commonly injured and the ability to discern artifact.

STATION 2: FORELIMB SUSPENSORY LIGAMENT

JENNIFER GARBER VMD

Equine forelimb suspensory ligament desmitis is one of the most common causes for lameness in all disciplines. Ultrasonographic examination of the ligament is important diagnostically, for targeted treatment, and to follow healing and design a rehabilitation program for the affected horse. The proximal suspensory ligament can be challenging to image due to its distance from the skin, interference of other structures and heterogeneity of composition at the origin. Participants in this wet lab will examine the forelimb proximal suspensory ligament, suspensory body and branches, and learn tips to produce the best images possible.

STATION 3: THORAX/ABDOMEN This station will cover the approach to ultrasound evaluation of the equine thorax and abdomen. Relevant landmarks will be reviewed, as well as probe handling and image refinement. A general overview of the FLASH technique for evaluation of the acute abdomen will be included. Participants will master the following skills:

AMY POLKES DVM, DACVIM

Thorax: You will perform an examination using intercostal technique and identify the pleural surface and the diaphragm. Abdomen: You will perform an examination in systematic fashion; identify the nephrosplenic space, stomach and small intestine; distinguish the liver from the spleen; identify the diaphragm and right kidney; and follow the duodenum.

STATION 4: STANDING C1-C2 CSF COLLECTION AND CERVICAL FACET INJECTION TECHNIQUES

SALLY DENOTTA DVM, Ph.D., DACVIM

Ultrasound-guided injections of the cervical spine provide valuable diagnostic and therapeutic options for equine field practitioners. Cerebrospinal fluid is a crucial diagnostic sample for the diagnosis of neurologic conditions in horses, including the viral encephalitides common to Central Florida. Similarly, cervical facet injections are a common therapeutic for horses with cervical arthritis, and this too can be performed in the field with relative ease. Techniques for both CSF collection from the proximal cervical spine of standing sedated horses as well as basic cervical facet injection techniques will be demonstrated, along with practical tips for success.

STATION 5: FORELIMB SUPERFICIAL AND DEEP FLEXOR TENDONS

JESSICA MORGAN DVM, Cert. ISELP

During this wet lab station, emphasis will be placed on looking above the routinely scanned metacarpus to the knee where the musculotendinous junctions in the carpal canal can be confusing, developing better probe control and scanning techniques through the metacarpus and then venturing below the fetlock into the pastern region where fluid and small tears are frustrating findings. This will be a hands-on experience that will translate into confidence and proficiency the very next time you scan this region.
