eCPD Lymphoma: Case-based investigations

An eight part video series with Roger Powell and Mark Goodfellow covering the investigation and treatment of lymphoma. Lymphoma is one of the commonest small animal neoplasms but it can often require a multi-disciplinary approach to diagnose and a patient-specific choice of therapy because lymphoma is, in fact, a group of related but distinct diseases.  Understanding the differences between different lymphoma types allows for a more specific diagnosis, better monitoring of treatment and selection of targeted therapy. This maximises the opportunity to choose a well-tolerated protocol and achieve an extended period of good quality of life. This series of videos, uniquely co-lectured by both a specialist clinical pathologist and oncologist, provides an initial brief overview of lymphoma followed by specific case-based discussion on how to investigate, diagnose and then treat many of the various common types of lymphoma faced in practice.  Each case is extensively illustrated with images to run through the diagnosis and management. Topics covered include: Clinical presentation of lymphoma Up to date targeted therapeutic protocols Accurate diagnosis and clinical pathology Case-based discussion – including alimentary lymphoma, cervical masses, extranodal, generalised lymphadenopathy and specific organomegaly www.centralcpd.co.uk www.vet-ecpd.com THE QUALITY OF ATTENDANCE COURSES WITH THE CONVENIENCE OF ONLINE With single subscriptions just £45/month or £395/year and Practice subscriptions just £2000/year for up to 20 people (an amazing £100/person/year), for unlimited access to 100s of hours of fantastic certified CPD for the whole Practice team, no other Veterinary CPD provider comes close.

Brachycephalic obstructive airway disease

Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Disease – There’s more to this than we thought!   Brachycephalic breeds have become very popular in recent years and represent a significant proportion of canine caseload. This popularity has highlighted the challenges faced by some breeds including brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome (BOAS) and has stimulated debate both within our profession and in the popular press. One positive outcome has been stimulus for research in this area, which is already helping to improve our understanding and drive changes in the way we treat those affected by BOAS. Whilst there is undoubtedly much more we need to know; recent advances have provided sufficient insight to allow improvements to the way we approach these animals. This course will provide a detailed overview of BOAS including review of the diagnosis, treatment and perioperative care including both traditional techniques and newer options that have become available. The course will focus on a practical approach to the clinical situation and will be useful for any clinician with a significant brachycephalic caseload regardless of whether they would plan to perform surgery themselves. Topics to be covered include: Overview of BOAS Techniques available to confirm whether BOAS is clinically relevant.

Practical local anaesthetic blocks in dogs & cats

Practical Local Anaesthetic Blocks in Dogs and Cats The use of local anaesthesic drugs as part of a multimodal approach to analgesia is commonplace in human medicine; they reduce the time patients spend in hospital, accelerate recovery and improve patient satisfaction.  Peripheral nerve blocks can be quick, simple and inexpensive to perform.  Despite this, the veterinary profession still relatively under-uses local anaesthetics.

Below are just some of the webinars available to our members or can be purchased individually For more information on our courses and membership please visit our shopfront --------------- Feline injection site sarcomas Rachel Hattersley Feline injection sarcomas are highly aggressive mesenchymal tumours which occur at the site of a previous injection, leading to an inflammatory reaction and uncontrolled fibroblast proliferation.  It is important to note that although vaccines are often implicated in the development of such tumours, feline injection site sarcomas can be associated with all subcutaneous injections including microchipping.  Although infrequent (estimated at 1-10 per 10,000 vaccinations), management of these tumours is challenging due to their size and locally invasive nature.  Distant metastasis occurs in only approximately 20% of cases, however local recurrence is reported in up to 40% of cats with apparently clean histopathological margins. Management of these tumours requires detailed and appropriate pre-operative advanced imaging for staging and to aid with surgical planning.  Wide surgical margins and a well planned surgery by an experienced surgeon have been associated with the lowest recurrence rates and reconstruction of such excisions can be challenging.  Chemotherapy and radiotherapy are also an essential part of the management of feline injection site sarcomas. This talk will aim to address both the epidemiology and suspected aetiopathogenesis of feline injection site sarcomas and also discuss the surgical management, post-operative care and neoadjunctive/adjunctive therapies used in the treatment of such tumours.
