Available to ACVS and ECVS Diplomates, residents and ANZCVS residents, residency-trained nonboarded/Fellowed and Diplomats/Fellows.
This is a laboratory on tibia deformity correction to manage medial or lateral patellar luxation. The laboratory will introduce delegates to the principles of PTO (proximal tibia osteotomies) and DFO (distal femoral osteotomies) and will allow participants to experience the procedure during the Dry lab. The course will also outline introduction to the FIXIN locking system for deformity corrections, case selection based on pre-operative planning from radiographs or CT-Scan and complications through clinical case examples. The trainee will also be able to recognize situations that require the use of other surgical solutions to treat same pathology. During the dry lab, ten 2-people-stations will be made available for trainees; deformity of plastic bones are made from real clinical CT-Scan cases.
