2nd Symposium

> Spastic-Hand 2


Dear friends and colleagues,

The first international Symposium on Surgery of the Spastic Upper Limb, held in Paris a year ago (March 9-10, 2017) hosted the world’s most eminent specialists of both adult and children upper limb spasticity. It was very well received, as more than 280 participants attended from 46 countries.

Many of you have expressed the hope that the event could be repeated, for more opportunities to learn, and share experiences and new ideas.

I am very grateful to our colleagues from Treviso (Italy), who have decided to host the second International Symposium in the wonderful city of Venice, next 5-6 April 2019. The program will focus on several challenging aspects of the surgical treatment, through lectures, round tables and extensive discussion between the experts and the floor.

Welcome to Venice!

Caroline Leclercq
Chairman of the First International Meeting


Dear colleagues

We decided to take up the challenge to organise the second International Meeting dedicated to Surgery of the Spastic Upper Limb. It will take place in Venice (Italy) on April 5-6, 2019. Save the date!

The scientific content is the highest priority for the congress: international experts will bring their contribution on indications, conservative treatment and above all surgical treatment, with a lot of opportunities for discussions.

But we would also like participants to take advantage of the unique beauty and magic of the host city. We will do our best to make this congress unforgettable, and not only from the scientific point of view.

Whether surgeon, physiatrist, neurologist, specialized nurse, occupational therapist or physiotherapist, you are welcome, and if you feel you could contribute to the scientific content of the meeting, please let us know.
