Berlin – June 2019
The Berlin meeting offered the opportunity to increase and share knowledge of surgery of the hand globally.
Dr Paul Jarrett presented his case series and treatment for Wartenberg’s syndrome which is a condition where patients suffer from pain and sensory disturbance on the thumb side of their distal forearm and hand form compression of the superficial radial nerve in the forearm. It is an uncommon condition and therefore there are few large series described in the medical literature.
Paul is an expert in the technique of minimally invasive plate fixation of the distal radius. His poster for minimally invasive plate fixation was presented in Berlin alongside his poster for his technique of endoscopically assisted distal biceps repair as there are relatively few techniques for this innovative procedure.
