On 14 November, we had the pleasure to witness the closure of the course “Diagnosis and treatment of the filum disease”, 2nd edition, in the main lecture room of the Filum Academy Barcelona®.  

The event was sponsored by the Chiari & Scoliosis & Syringomyelia Foundation 

and counted with the presence of Dr Alfonso Rodríguez-Baeza, Anatomy and Embryology professor of the Autonomous University of Barcelona. He delighted the participants with a splendid keynote speech with the title “Filum Terminale”.

Among the guests were representatives of areas such as neurosurgery, anaesthesia, cardiology, rehabilitation and the university sector. The researcher Dr Miguel B. Royo Salvador had moving words of thanks for all of them.

Dr Miguel B. Royo Salvador pointed out that: “… Scientific work is not always rewarded tangibly, but today is without doubt one of those days.

Disseminating the seven findings that we obtained after all those years of research is of great medical and social importance. For this reason, it is indispensable to unite our knowledge and to address the complexity of a disease that has turned out to the most frequent one of the human species …” 

The act ended with the reward of the diplomas to the participants of the course and an advance of some editorial news, that you will be informed about soon.

FAB®’s Filum System® SANITARY courses were accredited by the Catalan Council for Continued Training for health care professionals for the academic year 2014-15 as a Continued training activity for the course “Diagnosis and training of the Filum Disease, 2nd Edition” with training credits for attending physicians (registration: 09/11792-MD).
