Main specialty of the event

Starting with the classification of the injury or deformity, the faculty members share their preferred approach, treatment, and follow-up of cases with advanced difficulty.

Educational needs

Dealing with challenging fractures and deformities, consultants request exchange through case discussions both theoretically and through surgeries. Beside state-of-the-art approaches, expert opinions and discussions are highly appreciated to scientifically elaborate improvements when dealing with difficult cases.

Expected educational outcomes

Extend common knowledge and skills and awareness of surgical techniques by exchanging less frequent or demanding cases of orthopedics and traumatology.

Nature of the event

The course offers ideal conditions for the introduction and consolidation of surgery techniques. Participants learn about current treatment concepts as well as new techniques on internal fixation. On the first day, experienced surgeons provide a theoretical insight into therapy concepts and will focus on clinical anatomy, fracture classification, approaches and last but not least, many case discussions. The workshop on day two permits the attendees to apply the gained skills on fresh specimens under directed instruction.

Methods to promote active learning

Multimedia presentations; time for question & answer sessions and discussion; cadaver workshop with helpful hints shown by faculty members.
