Episode 2: Das Polytrauma - Polytrauma - Fractures of the Upper and Lower Extremity


A new episode of Sectio chirurgica will air this Thursday, November 10th 2016, 6pm:

Polytrauma - Fractures of the Upper and Lower Extremity

In the second episode we will focus on a polytraumatised patient. The patient happened to have a bad car accident and suffered from a trauma to the elbow and a trauma to the lower extremity. PD Dr Stuby will treat both injuries. Our interest is not only the anatomy of upper and lower extremity, but mainly the surgical treatment of an above-the-knee amputation and the double plate osteosynthesis of the distal humerus.

We will be joined by a number of guests, among these a patient who will tell us about his own experiences when it comes to living with a prosthesis and the difficulties he faced when relearning to walk. Another one of our guests will be a prosthetist who will give us insights into his work. Professor Stoeckle, head of the BG-clinic Tubingen, will also be in our studio.
