IFFAS Meeting is
rescheduled for 2022!
We want to inform you that due to the current health situation, the 7th Triennial Scientific Meeting of the International Federation of Foot and Ankle Societies (IFFAS) was rescheduled to April 28 -30, 2022 at the Sheraton Convention Center (Viña del Mar, Chile).
The IFFAS board made the decision in order to keep the spirit of such an important meeting that is expected to bring together the latest scientific knowledge in foot and ankle, plus the friendship and networking that makes us such a unique society.. The main structure of the scientific program will be maintained, with an update. We will keep everyone informed about program further modifications.
Paid registrations will be moved to the new date.
We invite attendees, speakers, and sponsors to stay informed through our official channels.
We will continue working with all our energy to make a great Congress.
Thank you very much for your understanding and support!
The advances in Total Ankle Arthroplasty (TAA) have been substantial in implant design and operative technique. One recent innovation is patient-specific instrumentation (PSI). PSI uses a preoperative computed tomographic (CT) scan and generates cutting blocks specific to each patient’s anatomy as well as a modifiable operative plan
April highlighted article: Total Ankle Arthroplasty Radiographic Alignment Comparison Between Patient- Specific Instrumentation and Standard Instrumentation
Several benefits are published supporting patient-specific instrumentation (PSI) in total ankle arthroplasty (TAA). This study seeks to determine if TAA with PSI yields different radiographic outcomes vs standard instrumentation (SI).
The Maule region has a pleasant mediterranean temperate climate, making it a fertile land for agricultural production. In this place rise the enigmatic cords of the Andes Mountains, where extensive vineyards are born that have managed to give life to wine routes and an enviable offer of wine tourism.
We have seen great commitment to make it a unique and highly expected scientific event in Chile. Not only from the faculty but also from attendees and the industry point of view.
Chronic lateral ankle instability is one of the most common issues seen by foot and ankle surgeons. Surgical treatment involves reconstructing the lateral ligaments, and the modified Broström has long been the gold standard surgical treatment.
The modified Broström (MB) procedure has long been the mainstay for the treatment of chronic lateral
ankle instability (CLAI). Recently, suture tape (ST) has emerged as augmentation for this repair. The clinical benefit of such augmentation has yet to be fully established. The purpose of this study was to determine if ST augmentation provides an advantage over the traditional MB.
