The Equine Hospital has recently been featured in an article by Horse & Hound following a complex three-hour surgery to correct a series of arteriovenous fistulas in the neck of five year old Hanoverian gelding, 'Luigi'. The surgery was performed by specialist surgeon Professor Debra Archer, who was assisted by a large team of equine medicine specialists and specialist anaesthetists. Medicine specialist Harry Carslake features in the article and explains that there is only one other published example of such a case in a horse. 

We are delighted that Luigi is recovering well and wish him all the best for the future. The full article is available here.
