The European Wound Management Association (EWMA) is an international European society devoted to all types of wound management. As orthopaedists, we are faced with a large number of cases with these types of problems, either in high-energy trauma or in reconstructive surgery in preop or postop situations.

EWMA offers EFORT an opportunity to share experiences for such management. This will be the theme of the EFORT guest session during the next EWMA Conference.

The EFORT guest session at EWMA is scheduled for 13 May 2015 from 13:45 to 15:00 during the annual congress of EWMA held at the London ExCel. This session on Wound Management in Orthopaedic Challenges will cover:

  • Reconstructive surgery: Wound management after total knee arthroplasty.How to save the prosthesis;
  • Trauma: Types of flaps and time management in severe open fractures of the lower limb with soft tissue defects; and
  • Limits of VAC therapy in orthopedics.

We invite you to participate in this session and learn more about the collaboration between EFORT and EWMA.
