In a brief 20-minute lecture Mr Horwitz will cover pitfalls in paediatric hand trauma and what not to miss. He will also briefly allude to congenital hand surgery and the challenges related to these conditions. This lecture is a starting point for focussed learning and he will highlight topics that need further review and reading.
