Spasticity of the Upper Extremity: Management Strategies Including Neurotomy, Tendon Transfers, and Arthrodesis Friday, October 27 Fri, Oct 27 5:00-6:00 p.m. CDT
Spasticity is a challenging surgical problem with many etiologies, including congenital CNS pathology, stroke, spinal cord injury and others. Surgeons caring for patients with spasticity should have a broad armamentarium of techniques to address spasticity, including selective neurotomy, tendon lengthening, tendon transfers and arthrodesis.
At the end of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Identify etiologies of spasticity and understand diagnosis and surgical decision-making.
- Describe the surgical technique for performing selective neurotomy and various options for tendon lengthening and tendon transfer.
- Discuss the role of arthrodesis for patients with spasticity.
