New developments in osteoarthritis
Tuesday 14 May 2019
19:00 - 22:00
Osteoarthritis often referred to as OA, degenerative joint disease or osteoarthrosis, is a common pathway for many disease processes the affect the joint. It is best described as an aberrant repair and degradation of articular cartilage with the involvement of subchondral bone including osteophyte formation and variable degrees of synovial inflammation.
Osteoarthritis is very common affecting both dogs and cats with variable estimates of between 20-60% of animals affected. Traditional therapies centre on learning to ‘live’ with the disease and are centred around weight control, exercise modification, judicious use of analgesic and anti-inflammatory drugs and the use of dietary supplements.
In this presentation we aim to take a look at osteoarthritis with a review of new diagnostic techniques and novel or innovative procedures to try to modify the progression of the process.
