Educational Overview
After the completion of this program, participants will have an enhanced knowledge of the pathophysiology and the management of targeted reinnervation, cortical reorganization and tissue engineering including the scope and application of surgical techniques used in treating and management of peripheral nerve injuries.

Intended Audience
The American Society for Peripheral Nerve (ASPN) Annual Meeting is intended for surgeons, researchers and other healthcare professional working in disciplines related to peripheral nerve and/or neural regeneration.

Learning Objectives
Following completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe and discuss the revolutions in tissue animation.
  • Analyze and discuss new ideas of bioengineering for the construction of improve artificial nerve conduits.
  • Examine alternative options for restoring lost function in the upper or lower extremity with nerve transfers or tendon transfers.
  • Explain and discuss new advances in nerve transplantation and repair.
  • Describe and discuss ways to improve the ability to interface the motor and sensory systems.

ABMS Core Competencies
This program will address the following ACGME/ABMS Competencies:

  • Patient Care and Procedural Skills
  • Medical Knowledge
  • Systems-Based Practice

Accreditation Statement
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the American Society for Peripheral Nerve (ASPN). The ASPS is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

ASPN Designation Statement
The ASPS designates this live activity for a maximum of 18.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Credit count to be available shortly.

Disclosure Policy
The ASPS requires all faculty, authors, planners, reviewers, managers, and other individuals in a position to control or influence the content of an activity to disclose all relevant financial relationships or affiliations. All identified conflicts of interest must be resolved and the educational content thoroughly vetted by ASPS for fair balance, scientific objectivity, and appropriateness of patient care recommendations. The ASPS also requires faculty/authors to disclose when off-label/unapproved uses of a product are discussed in a CME activity or included in related materials.


Joint Saturday Meeting

Educational Overview
This program provides an opportunity for surgeons, therapists, researchers, faculty and other healthcare professionals working in these complementary fields to share new discoveries and techniques. By learning from colleagues about cutting-edge technologies and patient-care options, participants will have a broader view of patient treatment and recovery.

Intended Audience
This educational activity is intended for healthcare professionals and researchers working in the fields of hand surgery,peripheral nerve and/or neural regeneration, and microneurovascular surgery and other complex reconstructions.

Learning Objectives
Following completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss clinical and basic science research.
  • Apply the high resolution MRI in imagining traumatic lesions, nerve tumors or with other pathological conditions.
  • Discuss nerve transfers as a potential option for treating spinal cord injuries.

ABMS Core Competencies
This program will address the following ACGME/ABMS Competencies:

  • Patient Care and Procedural Skills
  • Medical Knowledge
  • Systems-Based Practice
