Renowned airway surgeon and pioneer in laryngeal procedures Norm Ducharme, DMV, MSc, Dipl. ACVS, will help practitioners recognize, diagnose, and treat the variety of performance-limiting upper airway problems when he delivers the 2016 Frank J. Milne State-of-the-Art Lecture on Dec. 4 during the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) 62nd Annual Convention in Orlando, Florida.

Ducharme’s lecture, “Equine Upper Airways: Intersection of Evidence-Based Data, Emerging Discoveries, and the ‘Veterinary Art,’ ” will focus on clinical applications of various upper airway problems through examination of current research and emerging diagnostics and treatments. Included in his presentation will be unpublished data on management of complications as well as advances in standing laryngoplasty.

Ducharme is the James Law Professor of Surgery, Section of Large Animal Surgery, at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, and staff surgeon at Cornell University Hospital for Animals and Cornell Ruffian Equine Specialists, in both New York.

His clinical and research interests center on sports medicine with an emphasis on equine upper respiratory airway physiology at exercise. This encompasses flow and pressure mechanics, neuromuscular assessment of the neural control of airway patency, characterization of health status and disease (respiratory), and their influence on modifying or developing new surgical diagnosis and treatments
