Live-OP DKOU 2022
Prox. Humerus fracture follow your plan and avoid complications
Learn & practice
The specimens feature complex fractures in a closed soft tissue and reflect a realistic injury with all its challenges. This course concept allows for comprehensive trauma management from case planning using x-Rays and CT scans to discussion of reduction techniques to hands-on exercises in the Wetlab Center.
The company RIMASYS supports the international workshop. RIMASYS is an innovative MedTech start-up focused on improving surgical education and optimizing patient outcomes. The Cologne-based company is the world‘s only provider of realistic fractures in closed human soft tissue mantle. These fractures are used for medical education, surgical education and to support research and development.
Designed for experienced
The course is designed for experienced surgeons who wish to deepen and broaden their practical skills and knowledge of specific fractures through close dialogue with colleagues. Immediate feedback from experienced instructors will guide you step-by-step so that by the end of the course you will have
a comprehensive expert knowledge in the treatment of the specific fracture or joint injury.
Points for participation are applied for CME.
The live stream is for everyone free of charge.
We broadcast live from DKOU Berlin the prox. humerus surgery from the CadLab. The surgeon is Dr. med. habil. Denis Gümbel, Senior Physician, Trauma Surgery and Orthopaedics, BG Hospital Berlin. The operation will be moderated by Oliver Trapp, MD, Head of Department Reconstructive Orthopedic and Trauma Surgery BG Trauma Center Murnau. Our humerus VaWiKo implant is used.
Proximal humerus fractures represent 5% of all fractures in humans. Treating these fractures is challenging due to the anatomic features of the soft tissue part of the shoulder joint on the bone reconstruction. The variable angle stable / angle stable proximal humerus plate allows surgeons to treat both simple and complex proximal humerus fractures. This implant was designed with a focus on providing a precise anatomical fit and the ideal divergent screw position in the area of the humeral head.
The VaWiKo® tibia head plate 4.0 is used to treat proximal tibial fractures with a reliable retention of the reconstructed articular surface to avoid loss of reduction and subsequent post-traumatic knee joint arthrosis. In addition to the directly subchondral screw placement and stable plate anchoring, it is particularly important to provide support for the entire plateau across as wide an area as possible.
Distal fractures of the tibia, especially when the articular surfaces are involved, place high demands on the treatment. The angle-stable distal medial tibial plate combines the advantages of a fixator with the possibility of internal osteosynthesis. Advantages of a fixator with the possibility of internal osteosynthesis.
The treatment of distal tibial fractures, especially of the tibial pilon, is demanding and should be reserved for experienced surgeons. In complex fractures, a two-stage procedure with primary treatment of the fibula, minimally invasive reduction of the joint block and fixation of the fixator is indicated. Internal osteosynthesis is only performed when the soft tissues are stabilised.
