Cadaver course shoulder arthroplasty 2019:
The difficult shoulder
We cordially invite you to the 8th edition of our cadaver course UZ Gent - schoudergroep TerBrugGen - UZ Leuven on the 2nd of February 2019
This year the cadaver course will be on shoulder arthroplasty and the use of new techniques (PSI, Virtual Reality, GPS guiding, ..)
Shoulder arthroplasty surgery is experiencing a constant evolvement and we are happy to present the newest techniques. For the first time you will be able to create a cadaver specific guide to perform in advance that can be used during the course for your shoulder arthroplasty and several firms will show the newest technologies. Next also a reversed shoulder arthroplasty with a reconstruction of the glenoid with the use of an autograft can be performed by the participants.
The cadaver course will be held at the Anatomic Lab of the university Hospital Ghent in Belgium. The cadavers are Thiel-fixated which gives a soft and natural feeling for soft-tissue procedures. (videos of surgical techniques performed during previous cadaver course can be seen here)
It can also be a unique possibillity to visit Ghent; The old city of Ghent is a picturesque muddle of alleyways rimmed by quaint steeple-roofed buildings running along pretty canals. A walk through town on a winter’s evening, when most of the important buildings are illuminated, is an unforgettable experience, as is a canal boat ride down the many branches of the Scheldt and Leie Canals that intersect the city.
We are looking forward to welcome you on our cadaver course in Gent
