INSTRUCTIONAL COURSE 3: Adult Upper Limb Trauma 15th - 16th August

INSTRUCTIONAL COURSE 4: Adult Lower Limb Trauma 7th - 8th November

the aim of disseminating and discussing current philosophies of orthopaedic
trauma management. Different aspects of orthopaedic trauma and its
management are discussed each year with the emphasis being on new ideas and
philosophies. The meeting has grown in size over the years and now attracts
200-300 participants from over 35 different countries. The main theme this
years is 'What's new in common fractures' but there will also be sessions
dealing with 'hindfoot fractures', 'compartment syndromes' and 'medical
informatics'. There will also be small group discussions dealing with a wide
range of orthopaedic trauma topics of interest to orthopaedic surgeons. We
are pleased to welcome an experienced Faculty from seven countries.

The 2ND EDINBURGH INSTRUCTIONAL TRAUMA COURSE will be run this year and will
be dealing with orthopaedic trauma. The course was introduced in 2001 to
provide education in orthopaedic trauma to surgeons in training, and also
senior orthopaedic nurses and senior physiotherapists. It is of particular
benefit to surgeons preparing for their orthopaedic fellowship examination.
The three-day course held in 2001 proved very successful but the discipline
of orthopaedic trauma is now so large that we believe that a three-day
course cannot adequately prepare trainees. We have therefore split the 2002
course into three two-day courses dealing with all of adult orthopaedic
trauma and a one-day course devoted to paediatric orthopaedic trauma. The
courses are designed to be self-standing but trainees who attend all courses
will receive training in the whole of the discipline of orthopaedic trauma.
Delegates will be allowed to attend individual courses but it is suggested
that attendance of all four courses is preferable. There is a reduction in
price for registering at all of the courses. Each of the courses has a
similar format of lectures supplemented by case presentations and small
group discussion. Informality is encouraged and there is ample time for
discussion of all subjects. The Instructional courses are run together with
the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. There will be a quiz on Friday
16th August and the winner will receive a copy of the 5th edition of
Rockwood and Green. Delegates will receive the key references relating to
each subject.

The SORT-IT Lecture will be given by Professor Christian Krettek of Hanover,
Germany who will discuss 'Minimally Invasive Orthopaedic Trauma Surgery'.
Professor Krettek is recognised as one of the world's leading trauma
surgeons and has pioneered many of the techniques of minimally invasive
orthopaedic trauma surgery particularly with reference to diaphyseal
