Upper Limb Topics for Plastic, Orthopaedic and Hand Surgeons: Preparation for the FRCS Exit Exam (Section I)
19th May 2021 (Wednesday)
1900 - 2015 hours (UK time)
Online Teaching Via Zoom
Upper limb conditions are extensively tested in the FRCS exam. These can include simple hand conditions, such as a ganglion or trigger finger, to moderately complex conditions, such as the management of a rheumatoid hand or Dupuytren’s disease. More complex management, such as that for brachial plexus injuries, nerve paralysis requiring tendon or free muscle transfers, hand fractures, conditions affecting the carpal bones, congenital hand conditions, and bone tumours, are also tested in sufficient depth in the exam.
This talk by Mr Sam George, Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgeon at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham and the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, Birmingham, will cover the salient aspects of the above topics. It will discuss the main principles behind formulating a management plan for these conditions, as tested in the FRCS exam (Section I).
