2. Wrist Arthroscopy Workshop
- one of the first of its kind held in Malaysia at the UM Anatomy Dissection Hall.
On 8th October 2016, the Malaysian Society for Surgery of the Hand (MSSH) successfully organized a full day Cadaveric Arthroscopy Workshop in conjunction with the 12th MSSH Annual Scientific Meeting. The event was conducted at Anatomy Dissection Hall, University Malaya. Eight participants from all over Malaysia, inclusive of trainees in hand surgery and Orthopaedic surgeons attended both the comprehensive lectures and hands-on training.
The trainers consisted of our MSSH members. We were fortunate to have an international speaker/ trainer, Dr Wei-Jen Chen, a well-known arthroscopic surgeon from Chang Bing Show Chwan Memorial Hospital, Taiwan. The interactive sessions were beneficial as new experience and knowledge were shared with our participants.
Introduction on basic wrist arthroscopy; instruments, installation and portals were conducted prior to the training session. Demonstration was followed by practical session on creation of radio-carpal and midcarpal portals, triangulation exercise, wrist and midcarpal joint examination and debridement. Besides that, other techniques and procedures were also included in this session; such as radial styloidectomy, arthroscopic Wafer procedure and TFCC capsular repair.
Participants gave positive feedback and satisfied with the concised workshop. We are glad that the workshop significantly improved the confidence in their arthroscopic skill.
