Course Details

You're invited to participate in the Trauma Academy "L5 Specialist" course with focus on lower extremity - in collaboration with AUC. Target group are up to 18 experienced surgeons with knee and ankle specialisation. Two-day fracture management course is divided in two hands-on cadlab sessions embedded in an innovative planning and discussion concept.

Each session begins with case planning in groups based on X-ray scans, CT-scans and 3D printed models of the fractures. Followed by the treatment of lifelike fractured specimen. And finally results are discussed based on 3D C-arm fluoroscopy on site:

  • Day 1: treatment of Pilon fractures
  • Day 2: treatment of Tibial head fractures

  • Chair: Bertil Bouillon
  • Prof. Dr. Peter Biberthaler

Multiple sponsors provide expertise and implants/instrumentation to find the perfect material for the individual fracture. Special thanks to our partners to make this format possible.
