Dr Guillo has been working on arthroscopic treatment of ankle ligaments since 2013. He created The Ankle Instability Group in 2013, which brings together 25 international ankle specialists from all continents. The two-year results were presented at the ISAKOS congress in Shanghai in 2017 and will be published shortly. These techniques, which may seem daunting, can be learned provided you enter the anatomy lab and already have experience in arthroscopy.
The purpose of this course is to present all the tools used for arthroscopic repair or reconstruction of these ligaments. A half day will be devoted to lectures around the techniques and their results. A whole day is then planned to perform a Brostrom Gould and an anatomical reconstruction. An entire arthroscopy column, instruments, implants and a specimen will be provided per two participants.
We thank Arthrex France for hosting the course in the anatomy lab of their brand new premises. The small number of participants (max 8) will keep the course freindlya and collaborative.
Warning! to register to this course it is better to have a good level of arthroscopy, having already performed shoulder, knee or ankle arthroscopy. In my experience, surgeons capable of performing a cuff suture or ACL knee repair shouldn't have any technical problems.
