AOCMF Current Concepts in Facial Injury Management - State of the Art Discussion of New Management Techniques and Challenging/Controversial Areas is organized by AO North America and will be held during Sep 07 - 09, 2018 at Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel, Baltimore, Maryland, United States of America.
The target audience for this medical event is Oral Maxillofacial Surgeons, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, Otolaryngologists, Facial Plastic Surgeons, Oculoplastic Surgeons, and Neurosurgeons who interface in the treatment of the facial injury patient.
Rapid advances in imaging, planning, and treatment of facial injuries have created new imaging modalities, planning sequences and treatments of facial injuries, one of the common problems treated by craniomaxillofacial surgeons. New ways of modeling treatment plans, 3-D printing, and new paradigms in treatment planning and in intraoperative imaging to assess treatment accuracy are bringing many new techniques into the armamentarium for surgeons who treat these problems. There is a need for this information to be disseminated to practicing surgeons, fellows and residents in a high-level problem-oriented format with focused lectures, case discussions, and small group discussions to make the attendees comfortable with these new advances in treatment planning and imaging.
The course will take each area of the face including soft tissue and bone and highlight the new information, emphasizing case presentation and case management. Attendees will have a choice of objectives in small group discussions and will have an opportunity to have equipment demonstrated, experience planning and imaging and see new options for planning and evaluating reconstructions including new implants and fixation systems. The rationale and parameters will be discussed.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
