Aetiology and approach to angular limb deformities

This seminar will give a broad overview of the aetiologies of various commonly recognised angular limb deformities affecting dogs, in addition to clarification of the significance of deformities to clinical function. The terminology and approach to objective assessment and treatment of angular limb deformities initially presented by Paley and adapted for veterinary patients by Fox and Tomlinson (CORA technique) will be presented to give a solid foundation for the following two seminars which are more clinically based.

What you’ll learn:

  • The causes of angular limb deformities
  • The consequences of angular limb deformities
  • When deformities should be considered for surgical correction
  • An overview of how an angular limb deformity is approached, including terminology pertinent to CORA technique, and an approach to surgical planning.

Angular limb deformities of the hind limb

This seminar will present some of the more frequently encountered deformities affecting the bones of the canine hind limb. Deformities of the distal femur and proximal tibia are commonly associated with patellar luxation. Therefore this condition will be covered in some detail, including aetiology and surgical management, giving a deeper understanding of its treatment.

What you’ll learn:

  • The relevance of femoral and tibial deformities, particularly in respect to patellar luxation
  • An approach to correction of femoral and/or tibial deformities
  • Options for fixation of the femur and tibia following deformity correction
  • The prognosis following femoral and/or tibial deformity correction

Angular limb deformities of the forelimb

In this seminar we will discuss the relatively common antebrachial angular limb deformities. Antebrachial deformity is frequently seen in chondrodystrophic breed dogs, and the session will discuss at what stage such deformity ceases to become part of the breed norm and becomes pathological. Antebrachial deformities can also be encountered as a result of traumatic disturbance of growth in the radius and/or ulna. An approach to management of these cases is discussed.

What you’ll learn:

  • The relevance of antebrachial deformities
  • When antebrachial deformities should be considered for surgical management
  • Simple and involved techniques for correction of antebrachial deformities
  • The prognosis following antebrachial deformity correction


The price includes all 3 sessions, notes and quiz – 8 hours of CPD

*No traffic jams, accommodation hassles, pet or childcare, rota clashes, locum fees ……….. just great CPD and a valuable ongoing resource.
