Lecture at VOS 2018 Conference
VOS 2018 Conference participants get ready to listen to a presenter during a morning scientific session.
 
Get Registered for the VOS 2019 Conference in Breckenridge!
 
Dear VOS members,

I hope your fall is going well. Last month I had the pleasure of attending the World Veterinary Orthopaedic Congress in Barcelona. I saw many of you there, but for those who were unable to attend, you missed a great meeting. There were a total of 1,005 attendees from 50 different countries. The scientific sessions were excellent, and the city of Barcelona was beautiful and fun. VOS will host the next WVOC in 2022, but I encourage you to plan to attend the next European Congress in 2026 as well.
 
Just after the WVOC was over, we received the sad news that one of our long-time members, Frank Rapp, passed away. Frank was always a sight on the hill in his yellow Spyder outfit, skiing gracefully down the mountain. He loved the ski race and was always ready with words of encouragement or assistance. I remember one time I rode my snowboard into a tree well. I would probably still be there if Frank had not pulled me out. RIP.
 
As previously reported, our meeting planner, Penny Smith, will be retiring after our 2021 meeting. We are interviewing meeting planners and continued our decision-making at our fall board meeting last week at the ACVS Surgery Summit. We are well aware of the importance of making arrangements for the 2022 VOS/WVOC meeting, so rest assured we are on it. Due to the size of the WVOC meeting, we need to go ahead and start putting together a planning committee right now, so let me know if you would be interesting in helping out with it.
 
While planning ahead for 2022, we are not losing focus on our 2019 Conference in Breckenridge from February 9-16. Sponsors are signing on, abstracts are in, a great program is coming together, we have a very interesting Jacques Jenny lecturer, the facility is the best, and the town is fun. All we need is you! Go to www.vosdvm.org and get registered! Room selection is best if you register early. Don't forget about the $150 discount on registration fees when you book your lodging through Ski.com from our web site.
 
Jeff Godwin I was pleased to see many of you at the ACVS Surgery Summit in Phoenix. I want to thank the VOS Board for all of their hard work during our fall meeting. We have a great board, and I am looking forward to future productive meetings with you.
 
Enjoy the rest of your fall. Happy cutting!

Jeff Godwin
President

Practical Applications of the Cannulated Compression Screw

Veterinary Orthopedic Implants logo Course Description: The headless compression screw (HCS/CCS) system is useful for situations when a lag screw or pin and tension band might be used. The system allows k-wires to be placed initially to facilitate reduction and simplify lag screw placement. The cannulated HCS/CCS is placed over the k-wire after drilling with a cannulated drill bit. There is no need to drill a gliding and a thread hole. The HCS/CCS can be placed much more quickly than pin and tension bands and is less likely to cause irritation. The HCS/CCS is also very useful in minimally-invasive surgical applications. The HCS/CCS system and plastic bone models will be used to repair a lateral humeral condyle fracture, femoral neck fracture, TTT with TPLO.

VOI provides all equipment and materials for this course.
RACE approved credit hours. Certificate of Completion.

Course Instructors: Brian Beale, DVM, DACVS; Caleb Hudson, MS, DVM, DACVS

Needlescope Application with Point of Care Biologics

Biovision Veterinary Endoscopy and Owl Manor Veterinary logos Course Description: Lead the way and learn the latest arthroscopic diagnostic surgical technique, "NeedleOscopy" and biologic intra-articular administration under visualization. The purpose of this wet lab is to familiarize veterinarians with the ease maneuvering a 1.2mm (18-gauge) needle arthroscope in a joint, processing autologous point-of-care devices, and applying autologous protein solution under visualization. The lab will focus on performing joint lameness diagnostics, blood processing through a newly available point-of-care device, and arthroscopic guided administration under visualization on canine cadavers.

Many advances in canine musculoskeletal diagnostic imaging have been made in the past years with the use of MRI and improved ultrasound machines. Unfortunately, many times radiographic images don't show the problem because they show very little soft tissue, which is a common cause of stifle soreness. The NeedleView scope modality has helped practitioners to improve the ability to obtain a definitive diagnosis so that they could determine the appropriate treatment plan. A complete joint exploratory and / or administration of an autologous protein solution can be performed in a few minutes without general anesthesia on a canine while the canine patient is sedated and the joint locally blocked. This procedure obviates the need for general anesthesia surgical procedure, but in some cases, routine arthroscopy is required. The procedure allows the surgeon to document intraarticular findings to determine the best course of treatment. Pro-Stride APS is a proprietary dual-device system whose output produces a concentrated solution of cells, platelets, growth factors, and anti-inflammatory proteins. The output of the device is all-natural (from the patient's own blood), has clinically demonstrated effectiveness, and is convenient (no incubation, <20-minute processing, ambulatory).

Course Instructors: Chad Devitt, DVM; Kristin Kirkby Shaw, DVM; and Sam Franklin, DVM

SPOTLIGHT ON ...
VETERINARY TRANSPLANT SERVICES

VTS logo Location:
Kent, Washington
 
What year was the company started? 1996
 
What products / services does your company offer?
Veterinary Transplant Services is the leading provider of transplantable graft materials specifically for use in animals. We provide bone grafts, tendons and other soft tissues, corneas, osteochondral and other specialty or customized grafts for veterinary patients. VTS is founded on the principles and current standards that guide banking of human tissues. We focus on contributing to the advancement of medicine and improving the quality of life for pets and other animals. They benefit from having life-enhancing tissues and grafts that transform degenerative diseases or traumatic injury into normal, healed biologic tissue.
 
What should Veterinary Orthopedic Society members know about your company?
Allografts have advantages that autografts do not. Particle size is optimized to increase surface area (compared to autografts) and that, combined with demineralization, allows for rapid availability of native growth factors so, although autografts do have viable cells, osteoinductive allografts are most often placed in sites that contain the patient's own viable cells. This is why most studies show that in long term outcome studies, there is no difference in healing between allografts and autografts. These advantages, combined with the pain and potential morbidity that an additional surgical site creates, is what drives surgeons to use allografts, even in primary repairs. From Orthomix/Periomix, Synergy & Fusion Xpress, to our structural grafts and our newest product Fortigen™-P, grafts can help with everything from complex fracture repair, arthrodesis, spinal fusion, cranio-maxillo-facial reconstruction, reduction of periodontal disease, bony void filling, and delivery of antibiotics or other growth factors locally. Bone allografts can help increase bone density, restore bone height, reduce risk of fracture, and prevent the need for additional surgery.
 
Can you explain a challenging situation that your company was able to solve?
Prior to the establishment of VTS, bone grafts or other tissue grafts were not generally available for pets. The wide availability of a variety of graft materials including osteoinductive particulates, putties, blocks, cortical bone sheets, structural segmental grafts, tendons, and viable corneas have significantly widened the options for veterinarians to provide optimized solutions for veterinary patients.

Can you tell us about any new products or services your company is developing?
Fortigen™-P is real bone allograft (Orthomix®), with a proprietary surface modification that delivers enhanced osteoinductivity, robust healing, and a powerful and effective alternative to BMP-2. It has been developed and tested over the past 3 years and some of the surgical successes in extremely complicated cases are nothing short of amazing. In clinical cases, time to heal is comparable to those published for BMP-2. The safety profile for FORTIGEN-P is superior to that reported for BMP-2, because the signal doesn't leave the site; it stays with the graft facilitating bone formation locally.
