Introduction

ESSKA-AFAS is a section of ESSKA, with the purpose to group current or future European key opinion leaders in the field of ankle and foot related pathology. In 2014 ESSKA-AFAS was recognized as the most active section of ESSKA. We participate in research and education within our field by means of scientific meetings, educational courses and Pau Golano Research Fellowship.

ESSKA-AFAS is happy to accommodate a number of highly active groups and activities like the Ankle Instability Group (AIG), Achilles Tendon Study Group (ATSG) and the International Congress on Cartilage Repair (ICCRA). ESSKA-AFAS is also involved in the production of books and stimulates original research related to the field of ankle pathology.

We are delighted with the initiative of the ESSKA-AFAS Ankle Instability Group chaired by Dr. Stéphane Guillo to organize this ESSKA-AFAS open meeting which promises to feature all of the most recent insights on the theme.

We highly welcome this initiative and look forward to see you all in Bordeaux.

Dear Collegues,

It is with great pleasure that Thomas Bauer and I welcome you to this first ESSKA - AFAS AIG open meeting.

The ESSKA AFAS AIG was conceived in 2013 and has generated a lot of work in the field of ankle instability, especially exploring the new endoscopic treatment. This first open meeting is unique. We will have the opportunity to discover all the new published techniques for treating ankle instability under endoscopy or percutaneously.

The conference will feature an arthrolab which will give the possibility to all the Key Opinion Leaders to present their techniques on a cadaver specimen. Following this, a live dissection will be performed on each specimen. During the course of these 2 days, we will present all the different endoscopic techniques but also the best results with 2 years follow up and any kind of free papers on this topic.

We are delighted and honored to invite you to Bordeaux, France, in one of the most beautiful congress centers that France offers.

We look forward to seeing you in Bordeaux.

Warm regards.

Thomas and Stéphane
