Periprosthetic fractures of the femur are sources of problems for the surgeon either in decision making or in technical execution. During this webinar, treatment guidelines for traumatic injuries and reconstruction techniques will be discussed based on different cases. The subdivision of institutional roles and experiences (trauma vs recon) may hide the best solution of these difficult fractures. The purpose of this webinar is to discuss and describe how to obtain the best solution for the patient.


After this learning experience the participant will be able to:

  • Select the most appropriate solution in the revision of a total hip arthroplasty (THA)
  • Describe how to manage interprosthetic fractures
  • Apply the rules and principles of open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) in periprosthetic fractures around the femur


Registered participants will receive the webinar link by email 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.


The webinar is free of charge.

AO Excellence

In the Education Forum a group of arthroplasty experts develop AO Recon's educational offerings based on the needs around the world. They are also responsible for the articles on clinical topics, published in our newsletter.


An AO curriculum follows a systematic, patient-centered approach: Desired patient outcomes define necessary competencies, and these in turn define specific learning objectives.

Learn more about the the AO's curriculum development.

With the support of the AO Education Institute, AO Recon has developed such curricula from which three courses have been derived. Another curriculum on shoulder specific issues is on its way.
