News Best Paper Prize from the European Society for Surgery of the Shoulder and the Elbow (SECEC) awarded to shoulder instability study
A multicentre study by our research team on the treatment of posterior shoulder instability was awarded the Best Paper Prize at the Dublin congress of the European Society for Surgery of the Shoulder and the Elbow (SECEC).
Prof. Dr. med. univ. Philipp Moroder, Prof. Dr. med. Markus Scheibel and Prof. Dr. Laurent Audigé, DVM PhD carried out a multicentre study focusing on posterior shoulder instability. In this study, they were able to show that a new form of treatment, based on motion-activated electrical stimulation and developed by Prof. Moroder, leads to significantly better results than conventional treatment.
Five shoulder centres and an international study board took part in the study. In addition to Schulthess Klinik, authors from Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, St. Vincentius Clinic in Karlsruhe, Atos Clinic in Munich, Schön Clinic in Düsseldorf, Orthoprofis in Hannover, ICR, Groupe Kantys in Nice, University College London Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia in Modena were also involved.
Prof. Dr. Laurent Audigé, DVM PhD, head of our upper extremities and hand surgery research group, had the privilege of presenting the study on behalf of the group at the congress.
We would like to congratulate them on this award and are delighted that our research will help to provide affected patients with even better treatment in future.
