Today the global Covid-19 pandemic has forced EFORT to take the difficult decision to postpone the next face-to-face EFORT Annual Congress to next year and to create a new educational offer in the Autumn.

The new dates of the 22nd EFORT Annual Congress in Vienna are from 30 June to 02 July 2021 at the same venue, the Messe Vienna Exhibition & Congress Center.

In parallel and in its commitment to deliver a high quality scientific programme, as well as offer progressive tools for training & education EFORT will organize the 21st EFORT Annual Congress as The Virtual EFORT Congress (VEC-Congress) taking place from Wednesday 28 October to Friday 30 October 2020.

We know that there will be a lot of questions arising from this decision and EFORT is eager to answer them fully as plans come to fruition. To this we have enabled a detailed FAQ webpage, and invite you to check it regularly.

A patient operated on his/her hip complains of pain and/or is unsatisfied. You have discarded infection. What more?

  • Objectivize clinical situation: pain intensity, functional limitations, level of activity.
  • Other areas are cause of local pain: lumbar spine, abdominal hernias, genitourinary pathology.
  • Suspect: loosening without radiolucent lines or migration, too thick / rigid stems, subluxation in extreme positions.
  • Discard: poly wear, pseudotumors, particle disease, trunnionosis, ceramic fracture, ALVAL, allergies to metals.
  • Reconsider: lower limb discrepancy, inadequate offset, insufficient abductors, tightened adductors, localized trochanteritis and impingement in flex-internal rotation.
