Scientific Agenda

21 November (Thursday)

  • 07:30 - 12:15
    Pre Course Surgical Skills Hands-On Workshop
    This surgical skills workshop on human specimen will be a very comprehensive wet lab on the anatomic institution of Vienna and it will be focused on cartilage regeneration and repair procedures only. The cell transplantation technologies, which are right now available in Europe as well as biomaterials, augmentation techniques or microfracture or Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC) will be demonstrated and also practiced on anatomic specimens. Leading orthopaedic surgeons will guide through the course and help to develop the skills for cartilage regeneration procedures. Only 7 Tickets left.
    • 30 Min
