Video: Incisional gastropexy
For dogs that have experienced gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV) or that are heavily at risk for this life-threatening condition, gastropexy is a must. In fact, if patients do not have a gastropexy performed, 80% to 90% are likely to experience recurrence of GDV. Dr. Don Waldron demonstrates his method of choice for this life-saving surgery.
Dr. Waldron is the Chief Medical Officer of the Western Veterinary Conference and teaches and produces hands-on training courses for veterinarians at the Oquendo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada in conjunction with the conference and throughout the year.
