29 Jul 2022

BFPA gave a presentation on fluid injection injuries at the recent IFSSH, IFSHT, & FESSH Journal of Hand Surgery’s Combined Congress which was held on 6-10th June 2022 at Excel London. Over 5,000 hand surgeons and therapists from around the world attended the event with 90% having worked on a fluid injection injury and 50% having worked on more than one patient with a fluid injection injury.

BFPA had been invited to give a presentation at this event by the BSSH (British Society for Surgery of the Hand) following an approach and meetings held with the BSSH over the past year. Jim Martin presented (on behalf of the BFPA), on how to avoid fluid injection injuries, and Martin Kingsbury joined the post-presentation Q/A panel; overall BFPA’s contribution was very well received by the audience.

The BFPA will be working with BSSH to draw up a list of all of the hospitals which are best able to treat a fluid injection injury and hope to work closely with BSSH on a joint marketing initiative, with BFPA planning to donate copies of its fluid injection injury book to the NHS directly to be distributed to hand surgeons.
