Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We hope all of you are healthy and unspoiled by the pandemic situation.

After the pandemic seemed to fade away in Germany we are now facing another hefty wave particularly in the unvaccinated population. At the moment counts are highrising like a year ago. Nevertheless we are certain the 22nd Narakas Club will be held in Berlin may 19th to 21st 2022 without further delay.

There might be specific rules regarding Corona for travellers from other continents depending on the future development of Covid-19, and we will try to keep you upated as far ahead as possible. All persons fully vaccinated should have no trouble to enter Germany with a visa, if necessary. Information on countries with visa requirements are found on www.auswaertiges-amt.de. In some cases depending on your origin, even if you are fully vaccinated, there might be the need to present an additional PCR test on arrival. We will update necessary information accordingly ahead of the event.

Our task is to create a framework for inspiring presentations and lectures, for new findings and pulsating discussions. We found an ideal venue at the former Kaiserin-Augusta-Hospital, now restored and managed as Karl-Storz Visitor and Training center. Famous surgeons were performing at Kaiserin-Augusta-Hospital, like Emil Heymann, Ernst Küster, and even Fedor Krause, the founder of modern neurosurgery in Germany. We will be able to visit their restored operation theater.

The congress dinner planning is in full swing and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible. At the meeting we are considering some in detail face-to-face discussion sessions with specific debatable topics and will contact some of you directly for your valued support.

Abstract submission system will be open soon. We welcome all topics regarding brachial plexus palsies, reconstruction, and their sequelae, but we encourage you to submit anything you believe to be valuable for this scientific meeting.

If you have any questions or ideas, please do not hesitate to contact us. Please come to the city of Berlin and contribute to the 22nd Narakas Club may 19th to 21st, 2022.

Richarda Böttcher, Jörg Bahm, and Christian Hagemann

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are really glad to host the Narakas Club in 2022! It is a great pleasure and a challenge to organize the meeting in our exciting and ever-changing capital. Springtime is the perfect time to be in Berlin.

Although only a few of us met Algimantas Narakas in person, we will do our very best to keep his spirit alive in the tradition of the Narakas Club. Interaction and discussion will fill plenty of time, while the presentations will be well-structured and concise. We would like to raise topics of controversy and discuss them openly. The club meeting aims to build bridges between generations, countries and medical specialities in the field of plexus surgery.

For a successful meeting we need your contributions! Send us your suggestions, submit abstracts, and invite other colleagues to join us. This will be the base for a vibrant and inspiring club meeting, which all of you will enjoy and never forget.

Please join us at the former Kaiserin-Augusta-Hospital, a historical venue located in the middle of Berlin.

Richarda, Christian and Jörg
