    To view this collection, please login or join Education and Evidence.

    On the subject of distal femur reconstruction in revision arthroplasty, Mr Sujith Konan (UK) initially discusses the current techniques and their shortfalls before outlining factors to bypass defects for stable distal fixation. He presents evidence of non-modular tapered stems and their performance in stability, bone on-growth, corrosion and fracture. In conclusion, Mr Konan offers tips and surgical techniques from his own experience in total hip arthroplasty.

  • Algorithm for Acetabular Reconstruction

    Mr Stephen Jones (UK).

    To view this collection, please login or join Education and Evidence.

    This brief lecture, conducted by Mr Stephen Jones (UK), outlines the use of an algorithm to achieve a reproducible acetabular reconstruction technique. Introducing the four key considerations based on the Paprosky classification, he demonstrates techniques and choices for different classifications of defected or lost bone in the acetabulum. In conclusion, Mr Jones discusses how buttress, cup cage and patient-matched augments have provided options for fixation and stability.

  • Algorithm for Femoral Reconstruction

    Dr Ran Schwarzkopf (US).

    To view this collection, please login or join Education and Evidence.

    This brief lecture by Dr Ran Schwarzkopf (US) discusses the use of an algorithm for femoral reconstruction. After initially outlining the different classifications of defect, he presents a step-by-step guide of basic preparation, challenges, treatments and techniques according to the Paprosky classification. Dr Schwarzkopf highlights the various dangers when conducting femoral reconstruction before presenting a number of patient case studies- some of which include the REDAPT hip revision system.

  • Acetabular Defect Reconstruction

    Dr Richard McCalden (CA).

    To view this collection, please login or join Education and Evidence.

    Dr Richard McCalden (CA) discusses the different defects, techniques and implant choices according to the Gross classification algorithm for acetabular reconstruction. He outlines why the defect dictates implant choice and the advantage of porous metal technologies in total hip revision. Dr McCalden then presents evidence and case studies, including when augments and cages are appropriate, before concluding with a brief surgical demonstration and a summary of key considerations.
