Following on from the theory and fundamentals of plate osteosynthesis now is the time to put your knowledge into practice.
Starting with a short Q & A session to answer any outstanding queries you may have, the rest of the day focuses on the practicalities of performing the surgery using both saw bones and cadavers. This allows you to leave the course with full confidence to perform the surgery back at your own practice.

SOP™ for Fracture Repair (Full Day)
SOP™ - Locking Plate System for greater flexibility & more successful surgical outcomes

The SOP™ is a locking plate system for use in veterinary orthopaedics. Locking plates are powerful and versatile implants but the mechanics and methods of application are significantly different from conventional plate systems.

The course will cover locking plate mechanics, case selection, methods of application as well as modes of failure and a review of the extensive published literature on the SOP™ system.

The benefits of SOP™:

  • Available in 3 sizes: (2.0mm, 2.7mm, 3.5mm)
  • Locks using standard cortical screws
  • Can be contoured with 6 degrees of freedom
  • No weak points

During this session we will cover:

  • Fracture repair systems - the flaws and failings
  • Locking plate technology
  • Features and biomechanics of SOP™
  • Where and how to use it
  • Half day practical session using a variety of anatomical bones
  • Publication reviews

By the end of this course delegates should have an understanding of:

  • Features of locking plates
  • Case selection and clinical application of SOP™ system
  • Technical ability to use SOP™ in a range of orthopaedic applications
