4 - 6 novembre 2010
It is with great pleasure we invite you to the 2010 Naples International Shoulder Congress, about arthroscopy, prosthesis and fractures. The 2008 edition has been a real success both for the high scientific level of the program and of the Faculty and for the considerable number of participants even beyond our expectations.
The scientific program of the congress will include 20 live surgeries and relive surgeries, 6 lectures, 22 case presentations by leading shoulder surgeons, round table and podium discussions, and workshops by faculty demonstrations.
This meeting, supported by the efforts of three different Italian Scientific Societies, has the purpose of gathering the Italian and international scientific communities, in particular the Mediterranean countries, in a unique educational and cultural project on the shoulder.
In recent years shoulder surgery has changed and developed enormously. Arthroscopy has allowed a different approach to supposedly well-known pathologies like instability, showing different patho-anatomy lesions which require different solutions using scope or open procedure. Similarly, arthroscopy has modified the treatment of rotator cuff lesions,
prompting more and more surgeons to repair them using less invasive techniques, and the treatment of complex situations.
Together with innovations of arthroscopic shoulder surgery and shoulder arthroplasty, surgeons also have more possibilities to use different kinds of implants adapted to different pathologies. Indications on using resurfacing, modular anatomical systems or inverse prosthesis need wider discussion in the scientific community.
Finally, in fracture treatment, old techniques have been improved and new possibilities have arisen thanks to new implants, especially in the angle of stability, nail, hemiarthroplasty or reverse prosthesis.
The Naples International Shoulder Congress will be hosted at the Hotel Royal Continental, Naples, from the 4th to 6th November 2010.
The Chairmen Congress Organizers look forward to receiving your registration on www.nisc.it and hope that science and life pleasures will nicely combine during your stay in Naples, we look forward to seeing you in this heavenly place!
