Tetrahand Surgery Theme at Spanish Paraplegic Society Congress

The Spanish Paraplegic Society held the annual congress this time in the city of Oviedo, Asturia. Tetraplegia hand surgery had its own session and Professor Jan Fridén was invited to deliver a keynote address about "State of the Art in Tetrahand Surgery".  After the presentation, plenty of time was spent on discussing the when, where and how the surgical reconstruction strategies should be implemented.  It was agreed that this type of service should be integrated as a normal part of the rehabilitation after spinal cord injury and that information to the patient should be  provided during the primary rehabilitation period.
