SICOT PIONEER is the latest enterprise by SICOT’s Education Academy to leave a digital footprint on SICOT’s educational journey. Since June 2020, this virtual platform has been hosting a series of webinars and it is currently planning different e-events ranging from podcasts to live streamed surgical demos. The symbiosis of this digital programme together with our conventional Congress programme will strive to facilitate knowledge exchange from the most densely populated to the most remote corners of the globe, from the least to the most developed and from the most experienced to the youngest of surgeons.

Current Concepts in the Management of TFCC Tears

Date: Saturday, 24 October 2020
Time: 15:00-16:30 (Belgium/CEST)

A triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) tear is a common cause of ulnar wrist pain and distal radioulnar joint instability. Yet, not all TFCC tears are symptomatic and need to be treated. In collaboration with the Asia Pacific Wrist Association, the SICOT Hand Committee presents their first webinar, in which they discuss their approach in managing a TFCC tear and describe techniques in TFCC repair and reconstruction.

Got an interesting TFCC tear discussion?
All registrants are invited to submit their difficult or interesting TFCC tear cases to be discussed by our faculty live during the webinar! Please send your cases as a four-slide PPT file (first slide with registrant's name, designation and email; second with history; third with exam; and fourth with imaging) to for consideration, and our panel will pick the most interesting cases to feature!

The Evolution of Orthopaedic Trauma Implants: How Did We Get to 2020?

There is a dearth of information on trauma implants from a more holistic perspective in the orthopaedic academic literature, yet the evolution of this branch of implants is fascinating with its twists and turns as well as dead ends and breakthroughs - like a detective novel! SICOT invite you to join them for this webinar which will introduce this fascinating subject, explaining how, why and where we are in 2020.

Salvaging a Mangled Extremity (SAME): the emergency management protocol

A severely mangled extremity can lead to a high mortality rate if not properly managed in time. This kind of trauma can be both life- and limb-threaten-ing, causing permanent disability to the patient. Therefore, early emergent management is crucial and a proper protocol is necessary. This webinar aims to build an emergency protocol, taking revascularisation as the first priority. We then manage fracture fixation and soft tissue management as a whole.
