The Veterinary Medical Forum is designed to enhance informal communications between practitioners and NC State CVM faculty on issues pertinent to medicine and surgery. During these informal discussions, we will share current management ideas, procedures and techniques which we hope will be applicable to your practice. We invite you to bring your questions and/or cases (including radiographs) relative to the topics below.
Bruce Keene, DVM, MSc, DACVIM – Jane Lewis Seaks Distinguished Professor of Companion Animal Medicine.
Dr. Keene is one of the veterinary cardiologists at NC State, where he is a professor of cardiology and the Jane Lewis Seaks Distinguished Professor of companion animal medicine in the Department of Clinical Sciences. He’s also an adjunct professor of pediatric cardiology in the Duke University Department of Pediatrics. A past president of the ACVIM Specialty of Cardiology and chair of the ACVIM consensus panel on mitral valve disease, Dr. Keene’s current clinical and research interests include enhancing patient outcomes and safety in the cardiac catheterization laboratory, and the development of new medical and interventional therapies to treat chronic valvular heart disease.
Cardiology “pearls” provide clinically important and practical diagnostic and therapeutic insights regarding a variety of heart conditions commonly seen in veterinary practice, including chronic valvular and primary heart muscle diseases, including nutritional cardiomyopathy. In this session, Dr. Keene will review of some of the hard-won diagnostic and therapeutic insights gained over the course of his many years of cardiology practice, with time reserved for case-based questions and answers.
