8th Congress of the
Surgery of the Hand
Federation of the European Societies for
A Collection of
The Netherlands, May 22-25, 2002
The eighth congress of the Federation of European
Societies for Surgery of the Hand (FESSH) in Amsterdam, May 22-25, 2002,
has to my mind been a great success. The combination of an instructional
course of the Paediatric Upper Limb, with the issue of a congress book on
this subject, together with the Master Classes and Free Papers on various
subjects in Hand Surgery, has provided a broad view in our field.
The meeting was organised together with the European
Society for Hand Therapy (seventh congress) which added to the
understanding, knowledge and interaction between hand surgeons and hand
From every meeting originate articles of the Free
Papers in various journals and also a collection of articles has been
assembled in the proceedings, which lie in front of you.
Hoping you will enjoy the collection of outstanding
articles, yours sincerely, with kind regards,
Steven Hovius, MD, PhD.
