Hand Surgical Symposium Jena is organized by Conventus Congress Management and Marketing GmbH and will be held on Jun 01, 2018 at Steigenberger Esplanade Jena, Jena, Thuringen, Germany. The target audience for this medical event are Surgeons.
Conference Description :
We want to deal with the issue of the scaphoid fracture and illuminate all important aspects of primary and secondary care for this event. The scaphoid fracture is still one of the fractures whose treatment is difficult and often leads to unsatisfactory results. Even in the age of cross-sectional diagnostics, fractures are overlooked or diagnosed too late, complex anatomy and biomechanics are still not fully understood and explored.
Depending on the degree of instability, pseudarthrosis sooner or later leads to the destruction of the wrist, but the fracture healed in malposition can also trigger a post-traumatic wrist osteoarthritis. For many years we have been dealing with the biomechanics of screw osteosynthesis and improving the surgical technique. We combined these experiences in a clinical study on the 3D-navigated treatment of the scaphoid fracture.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
