This month we have plenty to educate the Hip surgeons amongst you, with Peter Biberthalers’ Fixation of Sacroiliac joint diastasis demonstrating Brainlabs 3D Hip navigation system in use at the MRI University Hospital in Munich and James Donaldsons’ Corail stem and Pinnacle acetabulum for a young adult hip arthroplasty, performed at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore, London.
Though well established in the hip and knee the role of peri-articular osteotomies in prolonging function from an arthritic ankle is far more niche. Hari Harans definitive Supra-malleolar distal tibial osteotomy technique will I hope prove uniquely valuable for those of you considering expanding your repertoire in this area.
Paul Fenton also adds yet another definitive trauma reconstruction technique to his already impressive series of step by step guides with this months Fixation of bicondylar tibial plateau fracture using a dual incision technique.
