The Scheker Distal Radio-Ulnar Joint Prosthesis is the only prosthesis that replaces all the functions of the distal radio-ulnar joint, including the sigmoid notch, the ulnar head and the function of the triangular fibrocartilage.  This workshop is intended to teach the hand surgeon the technique for application of the Scheker Distal Radio-Ulnar Joint Prosthesis.

11:15 AM to 12:15 PM
Room 311, Hynes Convention Center

Dr. Glenn Gaston will share tips on how to better manage your non-routine distal radius fractures and provide helpful insights on how headless compression screws can be useful for much more than just scaphoid fracture repairs.  Time will be reserved for a hands-on workshop to practice the techniques and tips learned.

11:15 AM to 12:15 PM
Room 309, Hynes Convention Center

This concentrated cadaver-based bio skills course provides the training required to perform endoscopic carpal tunnel release surgery using the MicroAire SmartRelease system.  Participants will observe the technique in-person as demonstrated on a cadaver specimen by a faculty surgeon and will have the opportunity to perform the procedure on their own cadaveric specimen.

11:15 AM to 12:15 PM
Room 310, Hynes Convention Center

This session, led by Jesse B. Jupiter, MD and Marc Richard, MD is a must-see for the surgeon facing challenging cases in the hand and wrist.  Come away from this session with fresh, creative approaches and tools to build successful treatment methods for complex fractures and reconstructions.

11:15 AM to 12:15 PM
Room 313, Hynes Convention Center

Learn how InternalBrace TM technology can change how you treat the most common to the most challenging indications in the hand and wrist.  Didactic session and case presentations will cover scapholunate, ulnar collateral ligament of the thumb and CMC suspensionplasty using InternalBrace TM Technology.

11:15 AM to 12:15 PM
Room 208, Hynes Convention Center

Review and discuss the kinematics and biomechanics of the forearm, concentrating on the role of soft tissue structures and how they affect forearm and elbow function.  During this session, we will feature the IJS™ Elbow Internal Joint Stabilizer that provides temporary subcutaneous stability between the distal humerus and proximal ulna in patients who have elbow instability allowing for early active mobilization and function of the elbow.

11:15 AM to 12:15 PM
Room 202, Hynes Convention Center

This session will provide an interactive forum, highlighting use of the Checkpoint Nerve Stimulator/Locator in a variety of procedures including: targeted muscle reinnervation, nerve transfer, neurolysis, complicated revision surgery and traumatic orthopedic injury and repair.

11:15 AM to 12:15 PM
Room 203, Hynes Convention Center

The STRATOS Endoscopic Release System is a must see for surgeons considering or currently performing endoscopic carpal and cubital tunnel release.  Faculty will present on clinical experiences and discuss ECTR with WALANT followed by hands-on cadaveric training for attendees.

11:15 AM to 12:15 PM
Room 207, Hynes Convention Center

This industry forum, with a cadaveric demonstration, will focus on plate design options to minimize soft tissue irritation during volar plating using Medartis. Expert surgeons will discuss clinical problems and complications and demonstrate, on high quality cadaver specimens, their soft tissue management and use of internal fixation.
