|Elbow and Wrist Committee|
Chairwoman: Denise Eygendaal (The Netherlands)
The Elbow and Wrist Committee was founded in 2014. In November 2015 we held a successful closed meeting in Italy, in concert with an Italian national symposium on elbow and wrist pathology.
In 2016, the committee successfully published its book ‘Elbow and Sport’, which provides a comprehensive overview of all sports-related elbow pathology, and describes the ‘pearls-and-pitfalls’ of related-elbow surgery. The authors are all highly experienced upper limb surgeons from across the world. The digital version has already been downloaded in high numbers.
This year a second elbow course will be organised in Arezzo, Italy, under ESSKA’s patronage.
Lastly, the committee is working on a virtual training module for arthroscopy of the anterior compartment of the elbow. The committee members have also started a research project on the prevention of complications in elbow surgery.
