This concentrated two-hour cadaver-based bioskills course provides the training required to perform ECTR surgery using MicroAire’s SmartRelease™ECTR system. Surgeons will have the opportunity to view a brief, pre-taped, fully narrated, live-patient ECTR procedure performed by Thomas Trumble, MD as well as observe the technique in-person as demonstrated on a cadaver specimen by a faculty surgeon. Additionally, participants will have the chance to perform the demonstrated technique on their own cadaver specimen as well as observe at least two other surgeons.

Skeletal Dynamics

Please join Skeletal Dynamics to learn about the latest advancements in prosthesis designs for upper extremity surgery.

The GEMINUS Fossa Specific Plate features a unique dual head design that improves fit to the volar radial surface, alleviating the potential for flexor tendon injuries while providing the scaphoid and lunate fossa with optimized subchondral support.

Also featured is the revolutionary ALIGN Radial Head System designed to restore the kinematics of the native anatomy, specific to each patient through the proprietary alignment instrumentation. Incorporating a long stem for solid fixation, the prosthetic head offers the versatility of a bipolar system during final positioning, then locking permanently into a monoblock prosthesis.

Truly a paradigm shift in upper extremity surgery based on extensive clinical experience.
