Medical Problem Solving

Friday 6th October 2017 Central London Pattern recognition is one of the stalwarts of clinical practice. A combination of book-learning and experience helps us all to know that the pot-bellied, panting, polyphagic, polydipsic dog is very likely to be Cushingoid. However, when the situation is less clear-cut, or there are conflicting clinical findings, it is easy to become lost. In these situations, a problem-based approach becomes imperative. The plan in this interactive one-day session is to explore some challenging medical cases using this problem-based approach. The cases will be a range of endocrine, respiratory, GI, urogenital and beyond! During the case work-ups we will look critically at clinical pathology, imaging and histopathology results in the quest to make diagnoses and plan treatments for these patients- it will be a whistle-stop tour of advanced internal medicine! The objective of this session is to improve confidence and promote a logical approach when dealing with more challenging medical cases. An ideal day for those undertaking medicine modules in certificates. Topics to be covered include: • How to approach cases using problem-based techniques • Interpretation of diagnostic tests and imaging • Logical systemic approach for investigation of endocrine, respiratory, GI and urogenital cases. www.centralcpd.co.uk www.vet-ecpd.com

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.
