«Ultrasound in traumatology and orthopedics»

Татьяна Серебряк
Tatjana Serebrjak

AIM: to review the role of the ultrasound in traumatology and orthopedics, to review the ultrasound signs of the various pathologies and their correlation with the clinical symptoms, to discuss the method of invasive interventions into the joint’s cavity under the ultrasound control

TARGET AUDIENCE: traumatologists, orthopedists, sonographers, physiotherapists, general practitioners

The widespread availability and recent technological advances coupled with portability, low cost and safety have made the sonography the method of choice when it comes to the diagnostics of the musculoskeletal diseases.

Ultrasound examination combined with the deep anatomical knowledge and clinical experience makes it possible to clarify various diagnostic problems, to form the most accurate clinical diagnosis and to improve the therapy and rehabilitation plan.

Tatjana Viktorovna Serebrjak is a traumatologist and orthopedist with a 15 years record of work. Her main area of interest is outpatient trauma treatment and orthopedics (including recovery). She’s interested in traumas and diseases of the knee-joint, the treatment of degenerative diseases of the tendons and ligaments, conservative treatment of the feet deformation. She’s trained in the musculoskeletal ultrasound, including the cervical and verterbral spine column examination. She uses the Sidas method for the foot orthotics, PRP-therapy of the degenerative-dystrophic joint and tendons’ diseases, and is trained in arthroscopy.

Tatjana is an active listener of the annual international and Russian conferences and seminars. Among her scientific achievements is her dissertation «Arthroscopic reconstruction of the ACL with the usage of various tendinous transplants», a number of published articles in professional publications, the patent for the device for examination of the anteoposterior instability of the knee joint. She’s a member of the Russian arthroscopic society.

“The role of dental restorative materials in the development of chronic maxillary sinusitis”

Ольга Быстрова
Olga Bystrova

AIM: to talk about the roll of the filling material in the inflammatory diseases of the maxillary sinus, to show the common mistakes in the choosing of the filling material and in the technique of the filling itself, to explain the methods of prevention of the pathology in question

TARGET AUDIENCE: stomatologists of the theurapeutic and surgical specialization

Odontogenic maxillary sinusiti are one of the most common inflammatory diseases of the maxilla. The significant percentage of the reasons maxillary sinus can get infected is taken by low quality filling technique and the surplus of filling material getting inside the cavity of the sinus due to the endodontic treatment. This lecture’s main goal is to explain the techniques with which to prevent this pathology, to show the careful process of choosing the filling material and how to diagnose the problem before it turns chronic.

Olga Bystrova – is the head of the department of stomatology at «Medilux-TM» and is the graduate of the I.M. Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University. In 2010-2013 she was an assistant at the department of the surgical stomatology at Sechenov Medical University, after which she passed a requalification for ‘Theurapeutic Stomatology’ specialty. She’s a head of the department of stomatology from 2015. She’s a participant of more than 20 congresses, seminars and master classes for stomatologists. She’s an author and co-author of more than 20 scienfitic publications.

Aim: to talk about the relevance of the regional lymph nodes ultrasound in patients with the breast cancer, to explain the correction of radiation therapy based on the ultrasound diagnostical data, to look at the methods of this diagnostical procedure coupled with the physical inspection.

Target audience: oncologists, mammologists, sonographers

The evaluation of regional lymph nodes is important for accurate staging of the tumor and developing the radiation therapy tactics in patients with breast cancer. Sonographic evaluation coupled with the mammography and physical inspection lets the physician to determine lymph nodes additionally involved in the pathological proces in more than one third of the patients. So, the usage of ultrasound in patients with progressive breast cancer changes the radiation therapy plan in more than 30% of the cases. Often the regional ultrasound is the only method that allows to correct the first stage cancer diagnosis to third and even fourth stage.
