Extract

This update reviews material presented at the 2008 annual meetings of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH), American Association for Hand Surgery (AAHS), and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) as well as articles published in the field of hand surgery (other than those published in this journal) between August 2007 and July 2008. Over the years, as with other maturing organizations, the trend at meetings has been for fewer free papers and more symposia and hands-on workshops, including many non-continuing medical education (non-CME)-credit industry-sponsored workshops in facilities adjacent to the accredited scientific meeting. In addition, both hand surgery organizations feature presentations on shoulder and elbow surgery and general microsurgery that are beyond the scope of this review. Meeting abstracts for the annual meetings of the ASSH and the AAOS are maintained online at www.assh.org and www.aaos.org, respectively.
