Description

Welcome to the Kings IM Nailing Symposia… This one day meeting provides a complete approach in teaching the principles, & basic science of intramedullary nailing. Lectures and demonstrations are undertaken by a established faculty of consultant grade surgeons experienced at providing trauma care. They will discuss and illustrate long bone fixation and nailing techniques in multiple locations.

At the same time, we will emphasis decision-making and alternative operative treatment options and what is now becoming the gold standard. Modern concepts, pearls of wisdom and tips and tricks, techniques and the basic principles will be reinforced.

We will illustrate the management of difficult clinical scenarios including proximal tibial fractures and supra- patella nailing and introduce the concepts of our simulation systems. Break out sessions have been orgainised and will be led by consultant faculty and allow practical hands on experience for delegates with the experts in a dry laboratory. The course is suitable for senior traines/traines who are developing their skills and consultants alike who have an interest in these procedures and trauma.

Our History… King’s College Hospital is a major trauma centre and also runs one of the largest Diabetic Foot Units in the UK. The unit provides tertiary referral service for complex diabetic foot deformity and lower limb reconstructive procedures including surgical deformity corrections. It has a history of teaching and training and has run both an FRCS course and specific hand, and trauma courses and is part of the Kings Health Partners Group.

Mr. Rajat Varma, is a Senior Trauma Consultant at Kings College Hospital and previous trauma lead. He has a passion for IM Nailing and is an international speaker in this area having lectured at many AO Expert Nailing Courses in UK and abroad. He has been developing the symposia ideology sine 2001with the original meeting. Along with his colleague Mr. Ahluwalia (Consultant Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgeon) who has a specialist interest in MTC trauma; the team believe in demonstrating and developing surgical acumen for the next generation.

Meeting Programme

The Role of the Nail in the Proximal Femur 09:35

Understanding different proximal femoral fractures A1 (stable) / A2 (medial wall comminution) & A3 (lateral wall fracture) in relation to preserving femoral neck length, risk of mal-alignment and propensity for delayed union.

Antegrade nail v/s DHS & retrograde nail- pros and cons of both techniques

How to Salvage Failed Nails? 10:10

Understanding why the nails fail in proximal femur fractures and how to salvage the situation

Tea & Coffee

Session 3: Distal Femoral Fractures

Distal Femoral Fracture - Plating Option 10:50

Understanding distal femoral fractures in relation to soft tissue injury, involvement of articular surface, risk of mal-alignment and propensity for delayed union.

Rationale for the IM Femoral Nail – Retrograde Nail 11:05

Why nail distal femoral fractures in preference over plating or ring fixator. How low can one nail distal femoral fractures with a nail technically and safely?

Advice on when to go antegrade or retrograde, emphasizing the pro’s & con’s of antegrade femoral nailing retrograde femoral nailing for management of distal femoral fractures.

How Do I Nail Distal Femoral Fractures 11:20

Antegrade Nail Step-by-step technique in nailing distal femoral fracture with antegrade nailing techniques.

How Do I Sort Out the Complications 11:40

Principles of treating non-unions of distal femoral fractures

Session 4: Proximal Tibial Fractures

Proximal Tibial Fracture - ORIF Option 13:00

Understanding proximal tibia fractures in relation to soft tissue injury, involvement of tibial plateau, risk of mal-alignment and propensity for delayed union.

The Advantages of Nailing Rationale 13:15

Why nail proximal tibial fractures in preference over plating or ring fixator. How high canone use the proximal tibial fractures nail technically and safely?

How Did This Complication Happen 13:30

How to Sort it Now? How to correct mal-alignment seen on immediate post op x-ray – What is acceptable and what is not and what to do next?

Session 5: Distal Tibial Fractures

Distal Tibial Fractures - Locking Plate 13:45

Understanding distal tibia fractures in relation to soft tissue implications, level of fibular fracture, risk of mal-alignment and propensity for delayed union – safe technique of locked plating.

Indications and Technique – Nailing Option Rationale 14:00

Why nail distal tibial fractures in preference over locked plating or ring fixator? How low can one nail distal tibial fractures nail technically and safely? Can and should nailing be used to treat plafond fracture?

Role of Ring Fixator in Distal Tibial Fractures 14:15

When soft tissues are not optimal – fixator is the answer.
