About The Webinar

An exploratory laparotomy is commonly performed in practice. It may be for diagnostic purposes or for treating conditions such as intestinal foreign body or a bleeding splenic tumour. This lecture will use photographs of clinical cases to show normal anatomical features and examples of diseased organs. It will help the vet in practice perform a thorough laparotomy and give some hints and tips on how to make the surgery easier to perform and how to access all of the abdominal organs. The use of photographs will help the vet to identify abnormalities they may not have seen previously. This course is aimed at recent graduates and vets returning to work, who may be nervous at performing laparotomy, as well as more experienced vets who want to improve their laparotomy technique.
