Annual Scientific Meeting, July 5-7, 2018, Athens, Greece.

Large Animal Programme

The 2019 Large Animal programme will feature four in-depth streams covering advances in arthrology, injury prevention and biological, gastro-intestinal surgery, and foal surgery.

Two parallel streams will focus on bovine orthopaedic surgery and medicine and critical care in surgery.

A new offer in 2018 will be the evidence-based medicine session in which very specific topics and questions will be covered based on currently available scientific data.

The detailed large animal programme can be found > here. The programme is continously being updated.

When planning your days and lectures, the Programme Committee invites you to not only look into your own speciality's programme: Watch out for the little Look outside the box hints in the programme, of which you will find at least one per day in the large animal programme; here the Programme Committee recommends lectures and streams from the small animal programme, which are of interest to large animal delegates, too.


Please find the list of accepted abstracts in the various categories (Resident Forum, Short Communications, Posters) under > this link.
