Learn what Novobrace is and how it helps heal soft tissue injuries in horses, including tendonitis and desmitis.
Reese Hand, DVM, DACVS, an equine veterinarian specializing in lameness and sports medicine, Equine Sports Medicine & Surgery, Weatherford, Texas, discusses this revolutionary technology that helps heal tendon and ligament injuries in all breeds of working and competitive horses.
Novobrace, an injectable bioadhesive, provides immediate benefits by forming an internal cast within the tendon to immediately stabilize and prevent the injury from spreading which allows faster recovery time. Novobrace has been evaluated and tested by leading veterinarians across the USA and the outcomes far surpass the expectations of treating clinicians. Novobrace technology reduces rehabilitation and recovery time by as much as 50% as compared to other treatment options.
Novobrace may be used as a standalone treatment or as a complementary therapy. Clinical indications include the treatment of superficial digital tendons, deep digital flexor tendons and suspensory ligaments with or without lesion.
Novobrace is available from your veterinarian through Centaur Animal Health.
