EFORT Webinar | ALLOGRAFT IN RECONSTRUCTION SURGERY
Tuesday 14 December 2021 | 19:00-20:00 CET  | Online Registration Open

This EFORT Industry Collaborative Webinar supported by LifeNet Health will focus on ‘Allograft in Reconstruction Surgery of Upper Extremities’. It will be demonstrated how structural allografts can be applied in advanced bone loss in shoulder and elbow surgery. We will share the clinical efficiency and outcome in several cases.

The presenter will show that allografts can be used as successfully as autografts in glenoid augmentation surgery, avoiding the issue of donor morbidity.

Furthermore, we will present that the graft selection is important. The experiences using different techniques with same grafts in several cases will be demonstrated and discussed.
