ÖGU Congress 2023 in Salzburg

Continuing education is the be-all and end-all. Therefore, I am gathering further knowledge and experience these days at the annual congress of the Austrian Society for Trauma Surgery in Salzburg.

Comminuted fracture of the elbow joint

I operated on a young patient, an athlete with a rare comminuted fracture in the elbow joint (Fig. before). These injuries are very difficult to treat, as the fragments of the joint surface are often small and it is often not even technically possible to reassemble them.

An operation for a thrower's elbow is shown.

Throwing elbow

A young athlete (pitcher in baseball) injured the medial collateral ligament of the elbow joint while pitching 3 years ago. He was treated in a specialized hospital by replacing the ligament with an artificial fiber.
