6th Basel Workshop on Current Concepts of Chest Wall Stabilization and Reconstruction

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 6th Basel Workshop on Current Concepts of Chest Wall Stabilization and Reconstruction.

We will again focus on rib fixation and on surgical management of sternum fractures. We will also discuss indications and practical aspects of chest wall resection and reconstruction.  We will have the honor to share the expertise and the support of outstanding international     experts.

To increase the interaction between faculty and participants, the lectures will be sent to the participants in advance. The first day, the workshop will be hold in a fantastic new and modern location, the Biozentrum. The content of the lectures will be illustrated with interesting and practical cases by use of interactive tools in a round table setting. The three different companies and experts will then present the most frequently used systems and give the opportunity to the participants to become familiar with the different techniques of fixation and osteosynthesis.

The second day, we will have the unique chance to test all systems on human cadavers at the Anatomical Insti tute of the University of Basel. First, didactic video supported demonstrations will be performed and then, hands on training will be available for each participant.

Register now, we are looking forward to welcome you in Basel,
