Small Animal Programme

The 2020 Small Animal programme will again run three full parallel streams:

  • The orthopaedic stream will focus on sports medicine (especially shoulder and distal extremity injuries), management of bone and cartilage defects, and infectious and mechanical complications after different sorts of surgical procedures.
  • The soft tissue programme will shed light on challenging reconstructive surgeries, management of traumatic wounds, treatment of surgical site infections and will provide up-to-date information about stenting and coiling of different organs.
  • The third stream will be dedicated to oncological surgery and regenerative medicine.
The detailed Small Animal Programme can be found > here. The programme is continuously being updated.


The list of accepted abstracts will be published in March 2020.
