DTR Medical sponsored the 4th RCSEd Wales Surgical Team Conference and 10th RCSEd All Wales Student Research Symposium recently held at Margam Park Orangery, Port Talbot.  This is a day that is always a regular event in our calendar.

The first half of the day brought together Surgeons to provide practical help and openly discuss a variety of issues currently facing our National Health Service (NHS). With a series of talks and abstracts on Quality Improvement projects presented for the RCSEd & 100Lives+ ‘QI Poster Wall’.

The afternoon session saw the Student Research Symposium take place. This year our DTR Medical ‘Innovation & Design Trophy’ was given to Setthasorn Zhi Yang Ooi for his poster on ‘Early Posterior Scoliosis Correction of Ehlers-Danlos Type 7a Patients with a Unique Non-invasive Growing Rod System’. Awarded by Mr David Owens, ENT Consultant, University Hospital Wales and Convenor of 10th RCSEd Wales Student Research Symposium 2019.

Steven Backhouse, ENT Consultant & RCSEd Director (ANG) thanked us for our continued support of both RCSEd’s national events, stating: “DTR’s sponsorship and support for the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh’s Symposia in Wales is solid, reliable and very much appreciated. Furthermore, their DTR Medical Innovation & Design Trophy adds value for the delegates and offers an appreciation of the benefits of research beyond simply the academic”.

At the event we exhibited our range of high-quality ENT/Maxillofacial instruments. Our Oral Biopsy Forceps were present, an instrument providing value-based savings in clinics across the UK. Crocodile Fine Jaw Micro Forceps are the finest Single-use instrument available and fit with the smaller Ear Specula options.  Our NEW Rosen Needle was also on show, providing Clinicians with an extremely fine instrument for difficult ear procedures.  Other products included our Clearway Suction Handle for foreign body removal from ears and noses, making it ideal for use in  A&E/ER practice.
