A Global Burden of Disease (GBD) population based study estimated the annual mortality rate due to road traffic accidents as 20.9/1,00,000 population across all ages in Asia in 2002.
Pelvis and acetabular fractures are considered a major cause of disability and mortality and often result in long recovery periods. As such there is a need for structured pre-hospital, in-hospital and post-operative healthcare delivery systems monitored by trained and experienced pelvi-acetabular trauma surgeons.
The "Association of Pelvis and Acetabular Surgeons of India" (APASI) have taken an initiative to organize the "1st Annual Pelvi-Acetabular Cadaveric Workshop" on the 11th and 12th of January,2014. A conglomeration of pelvi-acetabular surgeons of national and international repute will discuss this complex injury threadbare and the scientific deliberations are intended to benifit both experienced and young surgeons alike at this flagship event.
