1st Congress of Serbian Trauma Association held

Dear colleagues,
First Congress of Serbian Trauma Association (STA), held in Subotica 23-26. September of 2009, was very successful, has been assessed from participants from home and abroad. The Congress was attended by about 380 doctors and other health workers and associates. The atmosphere was very inspire in two congress halls for three days took place the presentation of papers, discussions, and compliance attitudes. The seriousness and interest were very high. The interest was great for presentations of famous experts from the South Korea, United States, Greece, Russia, Germany and from all the republics of former Yugoslavia. Especially interesting were the discussions in polytrauma treatment and fracture of the lower and upper extremities. The world leading expert in traumatology professor Pape, responded to questions and the primary treatment of open fractures with internal fixation. His answer was that we should be careful because the treatment of possible oseitis is extremely expensive and uncertain. His attitude is: On open fractures and especially III degree (by Gustilo) first applied external fixation, and only if you remove doubt about the existing contamination or infection in the development, it can be done the transformation of external into internal fixation. Euphoria of the primary application of internal fixation in open fractures, which prevailed a few years back has been replaced by caution and good evaluation. It is also obvious that the temporary use of external fixation in closed fractures has increasing importance especially in polytraumatized patients .
On the last day of the Congress began drafting the protocol activities around solving particular problems in traumatology. It started with the following protols: Treatment of open fractures, polytrauma care, treatment of femoral neck fractures, the treatment protocol of type C intraartikularnih fractures etc.. After discussion, our experts have proposed that for the next meeting of the STA should be prepared proposals for discussion and adoption. Every day, working was hard from 8 am - 6 pm except Fridays when it comes to the 8 am 2 pm.

The work of art openings included Serbian the best opera songer Jadranka Jovanovic won the hearts of the hosts and guests performing famous arias, not only in our language but also the guests of the Congress (even in Korean).
