The main challenge in acetabular reconstruction during revision THA is bone loss, and new techniques and technologies have dramatically improved results and simplified technical aspects of reconstruction. This webinar will review the bone loss patterns encountered during acetabular revision and the best techniques to solve each one with modern technology. The webinar will include a presentation and case-based learning format.
After the webinar participants will be able to:
- Identify the most common patterns of acetabular bone loss preoperatively on radiographs
- Describe the best methods of using uncemented hemispherical cups to treat mild-moderate severity acetabular bone loss
- Describe the best methods to treat severe superolateral acetabular bone loss (Paprosky 3A and 3B pattern)
- Describe the best methods to identify and treat pelvic discontinuity
Registered participants will receive the webinar link by e-mail 3 days prior to the event.
We recommend you to perform a function test and check the system requirements to ensure your computer is ready for the webinar.
