Two papers of AO Recon surgeons featured in American Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery

The current issue of the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery published two articles written by Philipp von Roth, Matthew Abdel, Scott Harmsen and Daniel Berry.

Both articles describe concise follow-ups at a mean of twenty years conducted at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. One study analyzes the clinical outcomes, implant survivorship, radiographic results and complications after total hip arthroplasty following operatively treated acetabular fractures. The other study focuses on long-term survivorship of uncemented jumbo cups used for revision THA, for which the clinical and radiological results, and the Kaplan-Meier survivorship curves were evaluated.

The lead author, Philipp von Roth, is currently working with Carsten Perka, Fares Haddad and Sven Putnis on finalizing the first AO Recon curriculum course template, which is to be rolled out in courses this fall. Matthew Abdel is an active AO Recon faculty member, while Daniel Berry is involved in the AO Recon Education Delegation and was involved in creating the first AO Recon newsletter last year.

Please join us in congratulating them on this outstanding achievement.
