ABOUT THE COURSE
This course will provide a practical overview of common procedures in feline soft tissue surgery. The information provided will be based on the veterinary literature and my own personal experiences. Each lesson will provide a review of the indications, relevant diagnostic tests, techniques, complications and expected outcomes for a selection of frequently-performed procedures in a given body system. The procedures to be covered range in difficulty from simple to advanced, but all of them can potentially be performed in general practice. All of the procedures will be demonstrated using narrated videos of actual clinical cases.

PROGRAM
The course will consist of the following lessons:
Week 1 – Getting sick cats through surgery. This lesson will review the following subjects: key differences in how cats and dogs respond to anesthesia and surgery; prevention, recognition and treatment of hypothermia and hypotension during surgery in cats; blood transfusion in cats; and hazards associated with use of endotracheal tubes and mouth gags in cats.
Week 2 – Gastrointestinal surgery in cats, part 1. This lesson will focus on esophageal feeding tube placement, gastrotomy, enterotomy, and the catheter technique for linear foreign body removal.
Week 3 – Gastrointestinal surgery in cats, part 2. This lesson will focus on intestinal resection and anastomosis (including a discussion of small intestinal adenocarcinoma and lymphoma in cats), and subtotal colectomy for idiopathic megacolon.
Week 4 – Respiratory surgery in cats. This lesson will focus on traumatic and congenital diaphragmatic hernia repair, ventral bulla osteotomy for inflammatory nasopharyngeal polyps, and repair of pectus excavatum.
Week 5 – Urinary tract surgery in cats. This lesson will focus on cystotomy and perineal urethrostomy, and will include a review of the types of urinary calculi in cats and the current approach to ureteral calculi.
Week 6 – Feline surgical oncology: A quick overview. This lesson will provide a review of the following surgically-managed tumors of cats: oral tumors, vaccination-associated sarcomas, mammary tumors, liver tumors, splenic mast cell tumors and primary lung tumors.
Week 7 – Clinical case (I). The student will put into practice all the knowledge acquired during the course and will become confident facing and resolving all kind of clinical situations.
Week 8 – Clinical case (II).

Most of the surgical procedures discussed in this course are commonly performed in dogs as well as cats, and you may find the course very useful even if your practice does not see many cats. If you are a general practitioner looking for ways to expand your comfort level in soft tissue surgery, or are already comfortable with basic procedures but want to take on some more difficult surgeries, this course is likely to fit your needs.
