EFORT IC Webinar | MONEY, TIME & RADIATION REDUCTION IN IM NAILS: INNOVATIVE SOLUTION REGARDING DISTAL LOCKING
Tuesday 15 February 2022 | NEW TIME! 12:30-13:30 CET  | Register online

Learning Objectives

This EFORT Industry Collaborative Webinar supported by Sanatmetal will focus on distal locking of intramedullary nails. Due to an aging population and increasing osteoporosis, the number of fractures and their treatment are expected to nearly quadruple by 2050, of which 6.26 million fractures are predicted for the trochanter alone (upper femur).

The average surgical time of a medullary nail is 60-90 minutes, during the operation 2-3 locking holes should be found under X-rays, which can take 3-5 minutes per hole depending on the surgeon’s practice. Meanwhile the surgeon and the operating staff are exposed to radiation (effective dose limit of 20mSv per year).

More information available soon

This Industry Collaborative Webinar is organised with the support of Sanatmetal in collaboration with EFORT.
