At the end of October, Moscow hosted two important events for the medical community, organized by professional associations of pediatric surgeons and orthopedic traumatologists.

From 21 to 23 October 2021 on the basis of the leading clinics in Moscow – DGKB No. 9 named after G.N. Speransky and DGKB named after N.F. Filatov the VII Forum of Russian Pediatric Surgeons with international participation was hosted. The Forum of Pediatric Surgeons of Russia is the largest scientific and practical event dedicated to the discussion of pediatric surgery, gathering as participants both recognized masters of pediatric surgery and heads of specialized hospitals, centers, institutes, services and departments and young doctors, as well as doctors of related specialties. Traditionally, the Forum is a platform for discussing complex clinical observations, the results of original clinical trials, the introduction of new treatment methods and the performance of surgical interventions. An employee of KSMU – candidate of medical sciences, assistant of the Department of Pediatric Surgery and Pediatrics of ICE Severinov D.A. took part in the work of the Forum and presented the report “Volvulus of the stenotic section of the intestine after suffering necrotizing enterocolitis” as part of the video session “How I do it “.

On October 21 and 22, 2021, the VI Pirogov Forum of Traumatologists and Orthopedists dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the Department of Traumatology, Orthopedics and Emergency Medicine of the MGMSU named after A.I. Evdokimova, was hosted on the basis of the Central House of Culture of the Railway Worker (Moscow). There D.A. Severinov presented the results of his own clinical observations within the section “Difficult cases in the practice of a traumatologist-orthopedist” – “Option of osteosynthesis in case of fracture of the sternum in a child”. Over the years of its existence, the Pirogov Forum has won the respect of professionals. Both ordinary doctors and luminaries of many specialties are honored to participate in it. The versatility of the topics considered and discussed does not leave anyone indifferent. The forum attracts a large number of not only traumatologists and orthopedists, but also rehabilitologists, rheumatologists, pediatric surgeons and those who every day are engaged in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients with injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system.

The presented papers were highly appreciated by colleagues and served as the basis for a lively discussion.
