RESUME – AFVAC CONGRESS – NOVEMBER 2019 – LYON:
The AFVAC congress took place from 28 to 30 November at the Lyon Convention Center. This congress was very informative.
First, we remind you that STIF – Vetlig Global strives to propose to the veterinarians high quality products directly from the collaboration between veterinary surgeons (who are really involved in improving animal welfare and the comfort of their masters) and knowledge from Dr. JP Laboureau. He has an experience as a specialist of knee orthopedic surgery for more than 40 years in humans, and he is the inventor of the free fibers, which is today mainly used in human surgery around the world.
A lecture on the intra-articular reconstruction of the cranial cruciate ligament in dogs was given by Dr. JP Laboureau, who talked about the history of this product that he invented in humans, and how he adapted this technology to veterinary surgery.
This presentation was then taken up by the veterinary doctor P. LE DOZE, who presented a prospective series of more than 80 dogs operated with the ligament STIF – Vetlig Global, with the technique developed by STIF. He presented his results with a follow-up of more than 7 years on the first cases.
The veterinary doctor N. CHAILLEUX also presented her results on the ten cases operated in 2018, with a decline of 1 year for his part.
