AORecon introduces session at EFORT congress

One of the opening sessions of this year's EFORT was held by AORecon, which was chaired by Carsten Perka and featured a world-class panel with Jean-Noël Argenson, Daniel Berry and Fares Haddad. After four presentations about diagnostics, pros and cons of spacers, timing of reimplantation and rebuilding after infection, Dan Berry led a case discussion involving both the panelists and the audience.

Even though the participants were not let into the congress before it opened and the session started, the room was full from the beginning and came to be overcrowded within the first few minutes. First feedback is very positive and indicates that the only downside of the AORecon session was the limited room size and time slot. Consequently, AORecon is looking forward to a longer, larger session at the next EFORT meeting in Geneva 2016.

The room where the AORecon session was held was overcrowded: people were waiting outside the entrance, hoping to be able to enter the room.
Almost an hour of discussions went by quickly, thanks to many questions asked from the audience.
