|AIMS & OBJECTIVES|
This course aims to teach the anatomy, the concept of elbow stability and the spectrum of elbow trauma. The hands-on cadaver section consists of topics covering surgical treatment of basic and complex elbow injuries. The course will provide a thorough understanding of the ligamentous and ossesous elbow injuries and introduce key techniques on ligament repair or reconstruction and fracture fixation. Trainees will be able to perform hands-on practice on fresh-frozen human cadavers.
| COURSE CONTENT AND EDUCATIONAL METHODS
The course consists of a didactic part in the beginning and hands-on cadaver sessions. We aimed to leave enough time to the cadaver sessions therefore the lecture will be concise to provide an overall rewiew of the topic and participants are expected to have basic knowledge.
In the cadaver sessions, surgeries will be guided step by step by the senior lecturer and performed by the participants. The same cadaver will be used for all surgeries, from minor and minimal invasive one to most extensile approaches.
