Outcomes and new ways in shoulder arthroscopy
The scientific program of the congress will include 11 live surgeries and relive surgeries, 6 lectures, 14 case presentations by leading shoulder surgeons, round table and podium discussions.
This meeting, supported by the efforts of three different Italian Scientific Societies, has the purpose of gathering the Italian and international scientific communities, in particular the Mediterranean countries, in a unique educational and cultural project on the shoulder.
The leading Scientific Societies in the field of shoulder surgery, ASES, EFFORT, ESSKA, SECEC and SIOT have endorsed and recognized the educational value of the program of NISC.
In recent years shoulder surgery has changed and developed enormously. Arthroscopy has allowed a different approach to supposedly well-known pathologies like instability, showing different patho-anatomy lesions which require different solutions using scope or open procedure. Similarly, arthroscopy has modified the treatment of rotator cuff lesions, prompting more and more surgeons to repair them using less invasive techniques, and the treatment of complex situations.
Together with innovations of arthroscopic shoulder surgery and shoulder arthroplasty, surgeons also have more possibilities to use different kinds of implants adapted to different pathologies. Indications on using resurfacing, modular anatomical systems or inverse prosthesis need wider discussion in the scientific community.
Finally, in fracture treatment, old techniques have been improved and new possibilities have arisen thanks to new implants, especially in the angle of stability, nail, hemiarthroplasty or reverse prosthesis.
Spallaonline will be attending the event both days with Dr. Paolo Baudi
