Dear members and friends of the Gerhard Küntscher Society,
In 2019 the Osteosynthese International 2018 Annual Meeting of the Gerard Küntscher Society, which will take place in Sibiu, Romania, between 12th to 14th of September 2018.
We invite you to attend this conference which will be held in the wonderful surrounding of the historical city of Sibiu founded by saxon settelers about 1000 years ago.
Sibiu is also the former European Culture Capital, located in the heart of Romania, next to the Carpathian Mountains. We choose this city due to his rich history and historical monuments, the surroundings nature and in the same time with good and modern meeting facilities only at a 8’ trip from airport.
We are happy to host this meeting to bring together dedicated trauma surgeons from east and west Europe but also other parts of the world.
This year topics will be:
The role of nailing in preventing or treatment of nonunion of fractures. Since the nonunion is still a challenge in this era we think this debate will improve our knowledge and experience. Comparing the experience of different regions and orthopedic schools will bring us together more closer to ideal solution to this problem.
The second topic of the conference is: the place of nailing in forearm fractures. This is still a controversial topic. The most of the surgeons prefer the plating of the forearm, but a lot of data suggest that the nailing is a very good option with its multitude of advantages.
We will be focused on additional subjects like: the place of nailing in the management of Osteomyelitis; State of the Art lectures about Femur, Tibia and Humerus Nailing; Varia – New Implants, New Techniques.
We welcome you, beginners or experienced trauma surgeons, to share or receive experience in this fabulous field of traumatology.
In the same time we expect you both, “nailers” and “platers” to have a constructive debate about choosing of the type of implant, both colleagues with many years of professional experience and those, who have just started their professional careers.
We all wish you an interesting scientific event but in the same time you will enjoy traditional hospitality of our country.
Looking forward to welcoming you in Sibiu
