Fixing Cardiac Disease at the End of a Catheter
There are several minimally invasive procedures currently performed for cardiac disease: correction of patent ductus arteriosus, reducing pulmonic and aortic stenosis, pacemaker placement for bradyarrhythmias, and heartworm retrieval. Cases that are amenable to these procedures will be discussed, and high-quality video of the procedures will be presented.

Garrett J. Davis, DVM, DACVS

The Use of Arthroscopy in the Diagnosis & Treatment of Orthopedic Problems in Dogs
Arthroscopy allows a surgeon to assess articular and peri-articular structures with minimal morbidity to the patient. In many cases, this modality is the most sensitive indicator of an injury within a joint and will diagnose problems that can be missed with advanced imaging alone. The use of arthroscopy to diagnosis and treat common orthopedic problems affecting the shoulder, elbow and stifle will be discussed. The use of arthroscopy to assess hip as well as carpal and tarsal problems will also be briefly looked at.

Heather Baginski, DVM, DACVS
