ICOPLAST has the distinct pleasure and honor to announce a webinar on WALANT in hand surgery.
Hand surgery is oftentimes done under general or regional anesthesia, eg by axillary or plexus anesthesia. Over the last years WALANT surgery has emerged to improve intraoperative testing of repairs such as tendon repair or osteosynthesis. WALANT uses local aneasthesia without tourniquet and keeps extrinsic finger muscles active and therefore open for intraoperative examination.
Donald Lalonde, world renown innovator and WALANT teacher will discuss how to improve and expand what you do with Minimal Pain Local Anesthesia Injection. , Elisabet Hager will discuss nerve decompressions in the arm and Jin Bo Tang discusses tendon repair under walant.
Focus will be on interactivity, practicality and pears and pitfalls will be discussed.
