|Abstract:||The 3 rd event of the Giessen International Conference on Trauma Surgery Technology on October, the 17th 2020 was hosted on Zoom in accordance with the worldwide corona situation. Dr Mieczakowski, Dr Yu, and Wolfram drafted in 2018 from Jan’s apartment in Bremen the manuscript which was submitted to and approved for funding by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). At that time, we had no idea what substantial changes the conferencing concept would require. This is why we would like to thank again Michele. She first planned this year’s event after the 2019 date and then in the spring of 2020 had to replan for the new situation.|
|Description:||The main topic for 2020 was trauma surgery implants and their functionality. The included figure (source: Dr Bosco Yu’s introductory talk) shows some of the requirements for modern trauma implants. Resistance against wear and against the generation of debris particles, adapted fracture toughness and stiffness have to be considered to avoid implant failure. The three sessions this year specifically addressed these issues by 5 talks each. First, talks about device functionality were presented, followed by the second session on surgical aspects of implants, and the third which investigated optimised surface properties. As part of our ongoing collaboration, Dr. Yu is overseeing our joint investigations about the mechanical stiffness in human femur head samples and the influence of osteoporosis thereon. Results are being prepared for publication at the moment.|
