MSK WEBINAR 2020, THURSDAY 17TH DECEMBER, 19:00 CET

Background information:
This is the second of our of MSK Ultrasound Webinar Series. This event brings together Ultrasound MSK experts from all across Europe. Our prominent speakers will address the challenges you face during your examination of Carpal tunnel Syndrome, help to improve your scanning skills and give you confidence in your final diagnosis. A step-by-step ultrasound-guided minimal-invasive CTR algorithm will be presented.

This webinar occurs now in the past. The recording is available. Click here to watch it now.

Learning Objectives

* Learn from PD. Dr. Hannes Gruber and PD. Dr. Alexander Loizides how they use Canon Medical devices in showing CTS evaluation and how Carpal tunnel release (CTR) is indicated in patients with severe forms of CTS with denervation and marked pain or in patients with failed conservative treatment.
* Get practical tips from the examples demonstrated, to increase your diagnostic confidence.
* In the question-and-answer session, you could find answers that you need.

Title: CTS Ultrasonography and diagnosis

Abstract:
Carpal tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is the most frequent compressive neuropathy. High frequent ultrasonography can reliably depict the actual architecture of peripheral nerves and especially of the median nerve: US-morphological features as well as measurements defining a carpal tunnel syndrome will be presented with examples of normal and pathological findings.

Title: Minimal-invasive US-guided release

Abstract: Carpal tunnel release (CTR) is indicated in patients with severe forms of CTS with denervation and marked pain or in patients with failed conservative treatment. Open CTR has been performed successfully for many years with a trend however towards minimal-invasive procedures leading to lesser tissue traumatization, lower rate of post-procedural complications and quick reduction of hand discomfort. A step by step ultrasound-guided minimal-invasive CTR algorithm will be presented.
