2nd Seminar

Of The Upper Limb
On Fresh Frozen
Cadaveric Specimens

Welcome Address

Dear colleagues,

The «1st Seminar of Upper Limb Tendon Transfer with Fresh Frozen Cadaveric Workshop», that took place in Thessaloniki at 12-14 February 2015 with international participation, was evaluated very successful, both in the theoretical and practical part. This gives us the courage and the right to organize the «2nd Seminar of Upper Limb Tendon Transfer with fresh frozen cadaveric workshop», on 28-30 January 2016, in Thessaloniki.

The 1st Orthopaedic Department of Aristotles University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) based in “G.Papanikolaou” General Hospital and the Orthopaedic and Traumatology Assosiation of Makedonia and Thrace will cooperate aiming to establish the Seminaras an annual educational institution and this is why your extra support in our effort will be really appreciated.

Tendon transfers are a unique solution in case of nerve or tendon injury as well as in cases of cerebral palsy and other neurological conditions. Proper technique and proper indications are absolutely necessary elements for a successful outcome of the surgery, since tendon transfers are the last line of defense for the restoration of motion and functionality of a limb.

Our intention is to provide this knowledge at international level and the practice in cadaveric workshop will provide the participants with confidence, so that they can be sufficient for these demanding surgeries.

The scientific program of the «2nd Seminar of Upper Limb Tendon Transfer with fresh frozen cadaveric workshop», will be held at AUTH Center of Dissemination of Research Results (KE.D.E.A.) and the practical exercise on fresh frozen cadaveric speciments will take place at the Laboratory of Anatomy Descriptive AUTH, as it was in 2015.

Our ambition is to organize in 2016 an equally major scientific event, despite the sharp economic downturn in the country which has an impact on all our activities. The success of the Seminar will be depending, not only on the high-level scientific and educational program but mainly on your active participation.

Sincerely yours
