  • Paralysed with Fear: the story of polioGareth Williams MD ScD FRCP, Emeritus Professor of Medicine, University of Bristol; Ambassador for the British Polio Fellowship 

The story of mankind’s battle against polio

            Even though it was never one of the greatest killers, polio became one of the iconic diseases of the 20th century because of its horrific impact on victims and society at large. Until effective vaccines were introduced, there was no protection against polio, which could drop out of a summer night into any home and paralyse or kill a previously healthy child. The iron lung was a powerful symbol of our attempts to deal with the devastation caused by polio. In some cases, it could keep polio victims alive until they could breathe again on their own; all too often, though, it became the patient’s tomb. 
            During the early 1950s, polio terrified Americans almost as much as the threat of nuclear annihilation – partly because the fear of polio was deliberately exploited by the March of Dimes, a fund-raising organisation headed by polio survivor President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The battle to defeat polio got off to a bad start during the 1930s, when corners were cut and children were given experimental treatments and vaccines that did not protect and sometimes caused paralysis and death. Later, in the 1950s, Jonas Salk and Albert Sabin became locked in a cut-throat race to develop rival vaccines. Both eventually came up with vaccines that worked, but this was not science at its most edifying: their rivalry was toxic and degenerated into a clash of big egos which held up progress and put patients at risk.
            Thanks to the concerted use of both vaccines since 1988, polio progressively disappeared across the world and in 2012 was on the point of being eradicated entirely. Unfortunately, it still clings on in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Northern Nigeria, and because of conflicts and the migration of refugees, is now spreading to other regions. Sadly, the greatest obstacle to defeating polio is now human nature, and especially anti-Western ideology in the last remaining boltholes of endemic polio. 
            As long as polio and unvaccinated populations exist, there will remain the risk that the horror of polio epidemics could return. It would be a tragic irony if the actions of mankind should turn the battle against polio into one that we can never win.

  • Biopsy in musculoskeletal oncology” - Yrd. Doç. Dr Mehmet Ali Deveci, Cukurova University Faculty of Medicine Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology Specialist, Assistant Lecturer 

       Biopsy is the most important step in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal tumors. Biopsy for musculoskeletal tumors has special rules.

  • ACL reconstruction – past, present and future - Senior Lecturer Octav Russu, PhD; Ancuța Zazgyva, PhD Student

      This course will highlight the most important steps in the evolution of anterior cruciate ligament surgery, from the very beginning, through the present state and into the future aspects of this very important part of orthopaedics and sports medicine. After a brief overview of injury mechanisms and symptoms, we will present the most relevant clinical and imaging signs that can support a positive diagnosis of anterior cruciate ligament rupture. The indications and contraindications of surgical treatment will also be listed. We will then discuss the most frequently used grafts and implants, detailing the pros and cons of each, with both clinical examples and relevant literature references. The current state of anterior cruciate reconstruction worldwide and in our institution will be presented next, with many examples of our own cases. The future of anterior cruciate ligament replacement is still largely unknown, as different implant and techniques are constantly developed and trialed, but we will try to present you the most relevant innovations in the field. We are looking forward to welcoming you to our course!

  • Congenital heart defect (CHD)- Professor Horatiu Suciu, MD; Valentin Stroe, MD, PhD Student

       Congenital heart defect (CHD) is a heart problem that’s present at birth. It’s caused by improper development of the heart during fetal development. 1 percent of babies are born with a CHD, one third of these babies require intervention to prevent death in the first year of life. 85-90% percent of CHDs have no known causes, 5-6% are related to chromosome abnormality, 2% are related to environmental factors. At Targu-Mures Emergency Institute for Heart Disease and Transplant, we are specialize in treating a wide range of congenital heart conditions in babies with congenital heart problems, around 500 procedures per year, of which more than 300 open-heart surgeries. The physicians diagnose heart defects and help manage the health of children before and after surgical repair of the heart problem. Specialists who surgically correct heart problems in the operating room are called pediatric cardiovascular surgeons or pediatric cardiothoracic surgeons.

      Treatment is based on the severity of child's heart condition. Some mild heart defects don't require any treatment. Others can be treated with medications, interventional procedures or surgery.

Repositioning the inferior alveolar nerve in the atrophic mandibular edentulous ridge.

Lecturer Horia Mihail Barbu,Phd Lecturer Raluca Monica Comăneanu,Phd  Coman Costin, Phd Faculty of Dental Medicine, Titu Maiorescu University of Bucharest

Summary : Since the development of endosteal implant reconstruction in the early 1960s, the severely posterior atrophic mandible has presented great challenges for the implant reconstruction team.

Most obviously the presence of the inferior alveolar canal and its contents has required that the implant practitioner take precautions and use the best surgical skills to avoid damaging the canal's vital structures. Because of its technical difficulty and sensitivity, this reconstruction procedure was not widely used at first.

Success and failures of non-surgical and/or surgical endodontic retreatment procedures –

Dr. Liviu Daniel Căminescu

Motivation. It happens that some endodontic procedures (treatments or retreatments) do not encounter the expected successful results, whatever these results might be (clinical asymptomatic tooth, per-apical lesion healing, etc.). There are, many reasons leading to that situation, starting from wrong diagnostic and finishing with overestimated possibilities of one certain endodontic procedure. Nevertheless, there are cases when healing could be obtained through very conservative endo or non-endo procedures, but dentists chose much more invasive protocols.

Objectives. This conference is meant to first establish the right relationship between endo-diagnostic entities and proper treatment protocols. Secondly, possible failure reasons are discussed together with their prevention and treatment methods.

Conclusion. In order to expect good results, it is very important to correlate a correct diagnostic procedure to the proper treatment protocol and to include the endodonticaly (re)treated tooth in a fair full mouth restoration treatment plan.




Splinting techniques for periodontally compromised teeth (Hands On)-15 pers

 Asist. Prof.  Anca Torcatoru

             Tooth mobility due to periodontal disease can lead to patient discomfort during mastication.

Substances considered useful and harmless that were withdrawn from the market due to toxicological issues. Lecturer Mircea Croitoru, Phd


Many substances were used in the past to solve major problems of mankind. Some of these "wonder substances" proved extremely useful in treating incurable diseases, or painful conditions; other gave us the possibility to fight against pests and save our crops, decorate our houses and obtain high quality gas for cars. Unfortunately, after a few years or decades of use deleterious effects appeared in the environment and the human population. New toxicological tests were enforced for future substances and the use of the old ones was forbidden. Examples of such substances are given in this lecture and the possibilities that some harmful "wonder substances" still exist are discussed.

Workshop : The patient counseling


They say the ability to communicate works for those who are willing to work on it.

The pharmacist has a major role in counseling the patient and guide him into a better understanding of the treatment the doctor recommended. Simple questions as “Why ?” “How?” “When?” “How much?” can come into a patient`s mind. The pharmacist must answer to those questions by transposing his scientific knowledge and scientific terms into a language that can be understood by the patient. Also, the pharmacist must earn the patient`s trust , understand his illness and make sure that every recommendation was completely taken. He must offer advices and have a respectful attitude towards the patient.

The Patient Counseling Workshop purpose is to simulate the interaction between the pharmacist and the patient and to help develop the skills that one must own as a pharmacist.

The registration is open to all pharmacist students, all years of study, the focus is on the attitude of the pharmacist and his ability to communicate with the patient.

The contest is an open dialogue between the participants, who play the role of the pharmacist and the patients. The participants will receive the medication for the patient, 10 - 15 minutes before the contest begins, so they will have time to read the prospects and identify the recommendation they have to offer regarding the administration mode.

If you want to take the first steps into becoming a professional pharmacist, this contest can be a dependable help into understanding and learning how can a pharmacist be an expert into the medication field and a great counseling person.

 More than that, the advice given by the special committee would be very useful in your career as a pharmacist.


Workshop : Clinical skills


The pharmacist profession is a challenging one, requiring lots of skills and sometimes adaptability to certain situations.

The pharmacist is an expert in the medical field due to his knowledge about the mechanisms of drugs action, interactions that may appear between drugs, adverse reactions and indications that must be given.

The contest “Clinical Skills” will challenge you to use your knowledge in pharmacology, biochemistry, pathology, physiology and pharmacotherapy in order to solve a clinical case. This represents the ideal way to combine and to apply everything you’ve learned during the Faculty of Pharmacy. It is addressed to students in years 4 and 5 of study and to pharmacists.

Two or three students/pharmacists will form a team and will receive a clinical case, they will dispose of materials and scientific books, but the main focus will be on the ability to make the necessary connections in order to solve the case.

Beside the scientific earned experience, there is the opportunity to exchange your knowledge with your colleagues. Students in years 1, 2 and 3 are also encouraged to participate because they have the chance to discover how exciting this profession can get.


 Workshop:Basic Life Support

Basic life support (BLS) is the level of medical care which is used for victims of life-threatening illnesses or injuries until they can be given full medical care at a hospital.

Each and every one of us can encounter situations in which our contribution can save a person’s life. This workshop is meant to teach you what sould you do in case of emergency situations where every minute counts. The theoretically skills you may already have achived will be put in practice during several simulations of life-threatening cases such as: car accidents, drowning, hypothermia, foreign body airway obstruction (choking), cardial arrest and much more.


More Lectures and Workshops will be added soon!
