Oakham Equine Hospital veterinary staff will be attending two major veterinary conferences (the European College of Veterinary Surgeon's Congress in July and the British Equine Veterinary Association Congress in September) to present the results of clinical studies and new techniques developed through collaborative research with the University of Nottingham. Dr Rafa Azola will be presenting the outcomes of a study which looked at ultrasound changes that predicted successful return to work following tendon injuries in racehorses. Hospital intern, Dr Daniel Castillo, and undergraduate student, Lucy Chapman, will present  results from a study looking at a novel technique for repairing deep flexor tendon injuries, which was designed and supervised by Dr Neal Ashton. The research abstracts will also be published in the Equine Veterinary Journal after the conference in September.
