Controversies_Spinal Cord Injury.png
Controversies in Acute Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury
3 December 2021

Acute traumatic spinal cord injury is a heterogeneous problem. Some patients may suffer from fracture and spinal instability, while some may not have any fracture or instability concern but suffer from ongoing cord compression due to degenerative pathologies. Other factors such as age,
comorbidities, and severity of spinal cord injury also influence patient’s overall outcome.

The nature of the pathology, as well as the lack of consensus in the techniques and clinical protocols of the spinal cord injury management have lead to many challenges. The roles of steroids, early surgical
intervention leading to better functional recovery, amongst many others, are still subject to debate.

In this interactive talk, we hope to share current evidence, provide updates and insights on directions ahead.

Management of Thoracic Trauma: Surgeon's Perspectives
Management of Thoracic Trauma: Trauma Surgeon's Perspectives
7 October 2021

The management of thoracic trauma involves more than tackling the anatomical injuries. Such injuries may involve organ systems outside of the thoracic cavity. Trauma surgeons not only need the skill sets to manage injuries to thoracic region, but also must possess the knowledge, understanding and strategies in managing the challenging implications of such injuries. 

We shared insights, key considerations, and experience in managing such injuries as a trauma surgeon. Our perspectives and strategies in managing such complexities, beyond anatomical injuries to the thoracic cavity, will help us gain confidence in managing our patients.

Chairperson: Adj Asst Prof Teo Li-Tserng (TTSH), Speaker: Dr Tarek Razek (Canada), Moderator:   Dr Tay Kon Voi (WH).
