I welcome everyone who wants to learn Ilizarov method, who has experience in Ilizarov method application and who has new ideas of its application. On this occasion I would like to pay obeisance to medical society and all people of Egypt.

    Over the course of history Egypt greatly influenced on culture and medicine development all over the world. And itís very pleasant for us to know that nowadays Egyptian orthopedists study the method of Russian orthopaedic surgeon Ilizarov and spread it all over the world.
It may safely be said that method from Russia won supporters throughout the world. Constructive possibilities of Ilizarov frame predetermined effective ways and methods of treatment. Ilizarov method gave an impulse to different external fixators development in the world but the concept of their work is based on regularities opened by Gavriil Abramovich Ilizarov. Today Ilizarov method is applied in angiology, neurosurgery, oncology, dentistry, arthrology etc. It proves that transosseous osteosynthesis method is inexhaustible.

    I am sure that 6th International ASAMI Meeting as well as all previous Meetings will be remarkable historic event for medical society as it will be held on the eve of 90th anniversary of method CREATOR, Russian academician G.A.
