ANZAST Rib Fixation Workshop

Directed by Associate Professor Silvana Marasco, a faculty of surgeons experienced in the surgical management of flail chest injury will deliver a program that is tailored towards consultant surgeons. The program is aimed at general, orthopeadic and thoracic surgeons who are looking to introduce rib fixation into their practice or to further develop their skills in an area they may only have had limited exposure to. The workshop will cater for 16 participants. Associate Professor Marasco will be supported by a group of senior surgeons who perform rib fixation regularly. 

The objective of the ANZAST Rib Fixation Workshop is to allow surgeons with experience in the management of trauma patients, to develop the clinical and technical skills required to introduce rib fixation into their practice. This will be achieved by a one day program that includes:

- A review of the literature
- Patient selection
- Pre-operative planning
- Anaesthetic considerations
- Patient positioning and incision(s)
- Case presentations
- A review of the equipment available, including hands on teaching on how to use the various systems available across Australia and New Zealand. 
- Technique
- Hands-on opportunity to perform rib fixation using the devices available, within a cadaver lab, supplemented by case presentations including CT-imaging
- Post-operative considerations including analgesia
- The logistics of introducing rib fixation into your practice and hospital

This is a unique opportunity for participants to gain hands on experience with each of the rib fixation systems currently available in Australia and New Zealand, guided by faculty who regularly use the devices in their practice. These systems are:  

- RibLoc (Medical and Optical)
- MatrixRIB (DePuy Synthes, a company of Johnson and Johnson)
