Webinar Director: Peter C. Rhee, MD
Targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR) can be utilized to enhance function of a myoelectric prosthesis in patients with upper and lower limb loss. With TMR, amputated, yet functional nerves can be transferred to intact motor nerves that are still present in the residual limb. With successful reinnervation of select target muscles, the available signals for neural-prosthetic interface is amplified which can be translated to more precise prosthetic function. The same technique can be used to prevent or treat symptomatic neuromas.
Over the past decade, TMR has been applied in various clinical scenarios with promising results. Tune in for this webinar to learn from a renowned faculty who have pioneered and continue to evolve the technique and application of TMR in upper and lower extremity limb loss. Explore the surgical technique and provide technical pearls when employing TMR for various levels of upper and lower extremity amputations to enhance neuroprosthetic function and/or to prevent painful neuromas. Amputations covered include:
- Trans-Radial Amputations
- Trans-Humeral Amputations
- Shoulder Disarticulation
- Below-Knee and Above-Knee Amputations
Round out the event with Q&A discussion with faculty.
At the conclusion of this webinar, learners should be able to:
- Explain the rationale for targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR) to enhance neuroprosthetic function.
- Recognize the role of TMR to prevent and treat neuromas in upper and lower limb amputations.
- Describe the technique for employing TMR in various levels of upper and lower limb amputations.
