Date : Thursday 10th November 2022
Venue : Huthard Room II & Presidents Room, YMCA, Kowloon, Hong Kong

Whether you enjoy seeing diabetic patients or avoid those appointments like the plague, diabetes is not going away. Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common endocrinopathies we see in small animal practice. While diagnosing diabetes can be straightforward, the treatment of diabetes may be anything but easy. Some patients respond quickly to management, while others take months to regulate.

In this lecture, we will be discussing strategies for managing our diabetic patients. We will discuss the typical management of diabetics, as well as recent advances in treatment and monitoring options. We will discuss possible causes of complications and how to handle them when they arise. We will have a selection of case-based examples to guide our discussions on how we can better manage these finicky patients.


Registration
Because of the COVID-19 social distancing regulations, the venue allows a maximum of 38 participants. Registration is required for attendance, and seats will be provided on a first come first serve basis. Please register early to avoid disappointment!

Time : Registration & Buffet: 7:00pm~8:00pm; Seminar: 8:00pm~10:30pm

1. An Introduction to Plates and Screws in Veterinary Surgery

Orthopaedic traumatology is a common scenario facing the veterinary surgeon. In recent years the advances made in the implants available to the veterinary market has exploded. Plates and screws represent the most commonly used implant system in veterinary orthopaedic traumatology. There are multiple different plate and screw systems that all have advantages and disadvantages. The goal of this discussion is to provide an introduction to the most commonly used plate and screw systems, their application and use in the veterinary field. This will encompass the systems themselves as well as the basic concepts of application.

2. Micro-Hip in Dogs and Cats – Why a Femoral Head Ostectomy is not always the best option

Coxofemoral disease is common in companion animals. These conditions can be developmental, such as hip dysplasia or acquired, such as trauma. In the older literature, the majority of studies were focused on the medium to large breed dogs, focusing on development, treatment and surgical management of osteoarthritis secondary to coxofemoral orthopaedic disease, often hip dysplasia. Surgical options for coxofemoral joints with debilitating osteoarthritis are limited to salvage procedures such as total hip replacement (THR) or femoral head ostectomy (FHO). In this session, the procedures, outcome comparisons, possible complications, etc will be discussed.


Registration
Because of the COVID-19 social distancing regulations, the venue allows a maximum of 38 participants. Registration is required for attendance, and seats will be provided on a first come first serve basis. Please register early to avoid disappointment!

Speaker's Biography


Dr. Myriam Baranger-Ete
DVM EMSAVM MRCVS


Dr. Myriam Baranger-Ete graduated from Maisons-Alfort National Veterinary University (France) in 1998 then completed a year externship at the Equine hospital of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of Saint-Hyacinthe, University of Montreal (Canada). There she completed her thesis with honours in equine locomotor pathology and diagnostic ultrasound in 1999.

A move to Hong Kong in 1999 brought her back to Canine and Feline Medicine and she completed the Distance Education Small Animal Sonology Course with the Post-Graduation Foundation of the University of Sydney in 2008, as well as a European Master of Small Animal Veterinary Medicine with the ESAVS (European School for Advanced Veterinary Studies), with the University of Luxemburg. During this training, Dr Myriam realized that an early and accurate diagnosis was key for any therapeutic success and she became passionate and obsessed about Diagnostics since then.

After intensive training, she focused on providing referral ultrasound services and promoting ultrasound education in Asia; co-founding Hong Kong first mobile veterinary ultrasound service in 2013, then developing the services together with her local partners in Singapore and Malaysia.

Aside of her referral ultrasound clinical work, Dr Myriam very much enjoys her time teaching other veterinarians ultrasound techniques giving seminars, workshops and courses all around Asia and overseas (particularly in Australia where her family was relocated in between 2018 and 2020 and where she co-founded the Soundiagnosis Academy, in order to provide Ultrasound Education throughout Australia and New Zealand).

She is an active member of the International Veterinary Ultrasound Society, of the European Society of Veterinary Cardiology and of the Australasian Association of Veterinary Diagnostics Imaging.

In love with Asia and Hong Kong in particular, she recently moved back after more than 20 years living and working in the city, and is thrilled to be able to continue actively developing Advanced Diagnostics in the region, as "Asia Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratories" regional director, and to be able to continue supporting her veterinary colleagues with all their diagnostic needs, so that they can provide nothing but the best level of care to their patients.


Hope to see you there.
