Gonzalo Mariscal, has been awarded for his surgical work in the fourteenth edition of the “Young European Scientific Meeting”, a European congress of medical students.

The study, entitled ‘Orthopedic treatment and early weightbearing for bimalleolar ankle fractures. Quality of life and complications’, has been tutored by the Dean of Medicine of the UCV, Carlos Barrios, and by the doctor of the Ramón y Cajal Hospital in Madrid, Alejandro Lorente.

With the research, “we have managed to demonstrate from a multicenter study a new procedure that increases the quality of life in a considerable number of patients with a specific type of fracture,” said Mariscal.

“This award reflects the constant and human work that we carry out from the UCV Musculoskeletal Diseases Research Institute, as well as a great personal motivation to continue doing what I like the most, which is research,” stressed the UCV student.

The European congress was attended by 300 medical students from 22 countries and three continents. In the area of surgery, 40 papers were presented, of which six were exhibited.
