Displacement of the soft palate during exercise is a single consequence arising from multiple possible paths. An international panel of world-renowned equine surgeons with extensive experience with equine upper respiratory tract disorders will discuss both the data and their personal experiences in managing this very “dynamic” condition.

Amongst the many points that will be debated, are the questions if surgery is the gold standard treatment or if different management options should be considered depending on the etiology?

Join this exciting Panel Discussion and interact with the world’s leading experts in the field of upper respiratory tract surgery.
