The treatment of hand and wrist fractures greatly evolved in the last few years enlarging the spectrum, but also posing new challenges. The introduction of new fixation materials together with better understanding of the wrist biomechanics allowed for new approaches and eventually enhanced results.
The accurate diagnosis of the injury, the choice of the best possible treatment strategy, the use of the most adapted osteosynthesis and a personalized rehabilitation protocol are all necessary steps for an optimal functional recovery.
This course features theoretical demonstrations followed by practical workshops on cadaveric specimens. This structure will give an in deep sight of the actual state of the art in the treatment of most common hand and wrist injuries. Four sessions will highlight specific topics in the hand and wrist fixation.
The small number of participants together with the large faculty of international and local experts will allow for a constructive and in depth discussion.
