Wound management is a vital part of equine medicine and surgery, as practitioners and specialists are frequently confronted with traumatic injuries in their equine patients. In a completely revised new edition, Equine Wound Management is the gold standard reference on this important topic for veterinary surgeons, veterinary dermatologists, and equine and large animal veterinarians. Now highly illustrated with full color photographs throughout, this long-awaited new edition is significantly expanded to include new developments and techniques in wound healing.
The heart of the book focuses on the management of specific wounds, organized by body region and wound or tissue type, with chapters covering the head, neck and body, distal extremities, synovial structures, and tendon lacerations. Similar to the first edition, these chapters include typical problem cases, covering proper treatment and post-operative care of each. A more comprehensive introductory chapter on the principles of wound healing offers expanded coverage of the physiology of cutaneous wound healing and discussion of other tissues affected by traumatic wounds, including tendons, ligaments, periostium, and fascia. Also new to the second edition are four chapters covering topical wound treatments, management of severely infected or complicated wounds, management of burn injuries, and practical use of lasers in wound healing.
