VCS Seminar: Dr. LaTisha Taylor

VCS Seminar - Dr. LaTisha Taylor

This case based seminar will focus on the surgical options most commonly recommended to treat primary glaucoma in dogs.  ‘Glaucoma’ refers to a group of eye diseases generally characterized by elevations in intraocular pressure (IOP) that cause the death of the retinal ganglion cells (RGC) with subsequent permanent vision loss.  Glaucoma is a common cause of blindness in dogs and controlling the elevations in IOP can be most frustrating. Early recognition of primary glaucoma is mandatory if successful regulation of IOP with vision preservation is to be achieved.  Traditionally, medical management was the initial approach for providing rapid decreases in IOP, restoring comfort, and preserving vision.  However, the lasting effects were shortened due to the primary glaucoma’s underlying pathophysiology.

Surgical intervention for primary glaucoma has many promising outcomes for our veterinary patients and displays the potential to salvage vision and control IOP.  These potential surgical interventions include cyclodestructive procedures or implantation of glaucoma drainage devices and both will be discussed.  However, client expectations, therapeutic goals, status of vision, and financial constraints must also be considered to select the most appropriate surgical option for each patient. Proper case selection will also be considered during the seminar.

PCOP 35th Anniversary

Save the Date - PCOP 35th Anniversary

Friday, November 14, 2014
Lyles Porter Hall, Room 1160
715 Clinic Drive
West Lafayette, IN 47907

This one day symposium celebrates the 35th anniversary of the Purdue Comparative Oncology Program (PCOP). PCOP was established to highlight the similarities between certain cancers in pets, especially dogs, and in human beings, and to encourage the use of “spontaneous” cancers in client-owned dogs to evaluate new treatments before they are tested in human clinical trials. The symposium will feature presentations by invited MDs and veterinary oncologists on three types of cancers, bladder, brain and lymphoma. There will also be updates from the Purdue Center of Cancer Research.

Six continuing education credits are offered for this program. To view the preliminary program, click here.

There is no cost to attend this event but registration is required. To register, click here. Online registration closes 11/12/14.

This event is sponsored by: Endocyte, Purdue’s Center for Cancer Research, Purdue’s Office of the Executive Vice President for Research and Partnerships (EVPRP) and Purdue Veterinary Medicine.
