Interactive educational webinar on the critical design elements of a successful uncemented femoral implant and how it has evolved to suit contemporary MIS techniques.
Learn why you would choose a short uncemented stem for hip arthroplasty patients and how an anterior approach can reduce recovery time and minimise scarring. Interact with Professor Justin Cobb, Dr Daniel Donaire, Mr Gunnar Flivik and Mr Johan Witt as they share their philosophies and technique for bikini incision anterior hip replacement.
Interest in short uncemented femoral stem designs for hip arthroplasty is driven by the promise of the preservation of proximal bone stock and easier insertion, with the option to adopt contemporary minimally invasive surgical techniques. However, due to the heterogeneity of the group of implants referred to as ‘short stems’ and some unconvincing survivorship results amongst this diverse group, some surgeons reserve these stem designs for specific patient types, such as those with type Dorr A and young adults. This webinar will present and discuss the results of a bone conserving shorter stem design based on a well-proven precursor and debate its use in a wider range of indications.
