Advanced Course in Total Hip & Total Knee Replacement

Advanced Course in Total Hip & Total Knee Replacement

DAY: FRIDAY 29 MAY

Judging by all the received comments, the “Advanced Course on Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement” has achieved great acceptance among our Congress participants as an established element of training. The extremely high attendance and the early interest accompanying this course in our two past congresses, are supplementary reasons why it will be held again in Prague.

The session will now feature in two parallel rooms an extended programme on the latest approaches to reconstruction of the hip (room 1 ) and knee (room 2) in adults. A panel of recognised European experts with a great breadth and depth of experience in total hip and knee replacement has been appointed. The members of the panel will pass on their knowledge of key issues in day-to-day practice in both primary and revision surgery. The aim of the course is to provide younger joint replacement specialists and more experienced senior consultants alike with an update on the latest in techniques and treatments.

Topics to be covered in the course are:

  • Selection of fixation type
  • Selection of bearings
  • Benefits and drawbacks of different approaches to the joint
  • Treatment of deformities when inserting implants
  • Diagnostics and treatment of deep infections
  • Treatment of periprosthetic fractures
  • Removal of well-fixed implants
  • Presentation of complicated primary and revision cases

Primary target attendees:

Confirmed specialists or senior consultants within the area of total hip or knee replacement. Pre-registration is mandatory.
