Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The 2007 Meeting on Upper Limb in Tetraplegia in Philadelphia provided an opportunity to explore individual and regional differences in surgeons' preferences in tetraplegic upper limb reconstruction. Reports were heard from New Zealand, Canada, Asia, Australia, and Europe. Most presenters attempted to gather data from across their regions. Each reporter made a sincere effort to identify the spectrum of the quality of the data, as well as the opportunities for regional progress. Completeness of reports varied, depending on sophistication of the available data collection agencies. Notwithstanding limitations and omissions, the commonalities and differences revealed in those reports were enlightening and provide opportunities for fruitful study. This article represents a compilation of presentations on regional trends by invited participants.
