On behalf of the Organizing Committee it is our pleasure to inform you about the 3rd Cadaver Course on Tendon Transfers in Reconstructive Tetraplegia Hand Surgery that will be held between April 6-8, 2011 in Tokaj-Nyíregyháza, Hungary.

The three day course is based on management and current concepts in the surgical rehabilitation of upper limbs in tetraplegic patients.

Topics include

• anatomy,
• biomechanics,
• suture technique,
• reconstruction of elbow extensor,
• reconstruction of thumb and finger extensors,
• reconstruction of thumb and finger flexors,
• reconstruction of intrinsics,
• combined procedures and new developments,
• spasticity,

Our aim is to provide you with a reliable toolbox of operations that can be applied in the majority of reconstructions necessary in tetraplegia hand surgery. Therefore, much time will be spent on practicing surgical procedures in cadavers.
