This year's SRFM Meeting was held virtually, and 13 members participated. Amongst many things, we discussed the ongoing work with setting up the microsurgical register, lead by Karin Elebro from Malmö. We also dicussused the development of research collaborations in microsurgery in Sweden, similar to Reconstructive Surgery Trials Network in England. Martin Halle from Stockholm and Eleonora Dimovska from Uppsala will collaborate to build a similar platform via the SFRM.nu website. Karin Säljö from Gothenburg was elected as a new member - Welcome!
The next meeting can hopefully be held live, and is planned for the autumn of 2021 in Linköping.
Another SFRM meeting was held successfully, this time in Gothenburg. Jonas, Fredrik and Andri arranged an educational meeting with focus on lower leg trauma. Lecturers from orthopedics and vascular surgery enriched our scientific program. As a key-note speaker, we had the honor of having Professor Cheng-Hung Lin, Head of Reconstructive Trauma Surgery at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Taiwan. Professor Lin was also elected an honorary member of SFRM. Highlights from the meeting included management of major soft tissue defects, reconstructive decision-making for lower leg trauma, extended indications for the use of VAC, and management of osteitis.
The next meeting will take place in Linköping in the autumn of 2020!
