Industry Forum 11: Total Distal Radio-Ulnar Joint Replacement using a Semi-Constrained Prosthesis
Presented by: Aptis Medical, LLC
Faculty: Jesse B. Jupiter, MD, Luis R. Scheker, MD
Location: Columbus A B
The Scheker Distal Radio‐Ulnar Joint prosthesis is the only prosthesis that replaces all of the functions of the distal radio‐ulnar joint, including the sigmoid notch, the ulnar head and the function of the triangular fibro cartilage. This workshop is intended to teach the hand surgeon the technique for application of the Scheker Distal Radio‐Ulnar Joint prosthesis. The pearls and pitfalls will be discussed when using the replacement either primarily, following soft tissue arthroplasties such as Darrach, Sauve‐Kapandji, Watson matched resection, Bowers hemi‐resection procedures, and as a salvage of other prosthetic options.
Industry Forum 12: Management of Challenging Nerve and Soft Tissue Injuries: Solutions for the Hand
Presented by: Integra
Faculty: Randip R. Bindra, MD, FRCS, John T. Capo, MD
Location: Regency C
This workshop will focus on classic and new innovative techniques for management of complex hand soft tissue injuries in an interactive case discussion format. The use of intrinsic flaps and collagen templates
will be discussed for managing soft tissue loss. Role of nerve entubulation repair and collagen wraps for nerve scarring will be highlighted using complex clinical cases with interactive participation from the audience.
Industry Forum 13: Total Wrist Arthroplasty; the Motion Preserving Treatment Option for Painful Arthritis
Presented by: Small Bone Innovations, Inc.
Faculty: Martin I. Boyer, MD, FRCS(C), Marco Rizzo, MD
Location: Regency D
This course will discuss the merits of Total Wrist Arthroplasty and where this procedure fits optimally within the treatment algorithm for wrist arthritis. A variety of topics including indications, patient selection criteria, post-op protocol and surgical technique will be presented. The faculty will present recent successful surgical cases for review and examples of the wrist arthritis treatment
algorithm. Long term clinical results as well as kinematic lab data on the ReMotion total wrist implant will be presented.
Industry Forum 14: Latest Innovations in Distal Radius Fracture Fixation using the Geminus Fossa Specific Volar Plate
Presented by: Skeletal Dynamics
Faculty: Jorge L. Orbay, MD
Location: Plaza B
Geminus Fossa Specific Plate is the future in volar plating. The plate features a dual head design that improves fit to the anatomy; minimizing potential for flexor tendon injuries, while providing the scaphoid lunate fossae with optimized subchondral support. Each head is malleable for ideal patient matching.
Industry Forum 15: Synthes Innovation: Variable Angle LCP Elbow System
Presented by: Synthes
Faculty: Harry A. Hoyen, MD
Synthes presents a lecture and hands-on workshop featuring the new 2.7 mm / 3.5 mm Variable Angle LCP Elbow System. The lab will explore both 180 and 90 – 90 plating of the distal humerus. The latest techniques and surgical approaches to treat olecranon fractures will also be presented.
Industry Forum 16: Innovations in PIP Arthrodesis
Presented by: OsteoMed
Faculty: Randall W. Viola, MD
Location: Colubus C D
Introducing the HPS™ Hand Fusion System featuring the FIRST cannulated, compression, variable-angle locking screw. The innovative hand fusion design combines compression, angular versatility and stability. The Hand Fusion System utilizes OsteoMed’s variable-angle locking technology to provide stable fusion at the natural resting angle. The step-by-step surgical technique for PIP fusion will be performed by a surgeon instructor followed by hands-on experience for attendees.
Industry Forum 17: Evolution of Plate Fixation of Distal Radius
Presented by: Acumed
Faculty: William B. Geissler, MD
Join Dr. William Geissler for an in depth presentation on the management of distal radius fracture fixation. Following the lecture there will be a hands-on demonstration workshop.
Industry Forum 18: Current Concepts in Shoulder Arthroplasty
Presented by: Stryker
Faculty: Joaquin Sanchez-Sotelo, MD, PhD
Industry Forum 19: Training for the Administration of XIAFLEX® (collagenase clostridium histolyticum)
Presented by: Auxilium Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Faculty: Bronier L. Costas, MD
Location: Plaza A
XIAFLEX is a pharmacologic, nonsurgical procedure approved by the FDA for the treatment of adult patients with Dupuytren’s contracture with a palpable cord. Because XIAFLEX is administered by injection into the Dupuytren’s cord, training is required to ensure safe and proper product use. This workshop will highlight key aspects of administration, present the required training video for viewing, and allow participants to view a real case. This training workshop is appropriate for physicians.
Industry Forum 20: A Novel, Multi-Planar and Less Invasive Approach to Distal Radius Fracture Fixation
Presented by: Conventus Orthopaedics
Faculty: Michael Strassmair, MD, Senat Krasnići, MD, Sanjay S. Desai, MD
An introduction to a novel, multi-planar and less invasive approach to distal radius fracture fixation with surgical case review presentations and the opportunity for hands-on sawbones demos available to the attendees.
Industry Forum 41: Distal Radius Fracture Review and Plating Concepts
Presented by: Biomet Orthopedics
Location: Montreux Ballroom 2 (Located in the Swissotel, 323 E. Wacker Drive)
Dr. Michael Bednar will discuss distal radius fracture management using advanced plating concepts. The lab will explore both simple and complex fracture treatment. Following the lecture there will be a hands-on demonstration workshop.
Please note: this course takes place at the Swissotel, approximately a 4 minute walk from the Hyatt.
6:30 - 8:00 PM
Industry Forum 21: Interactive Workshop: Application of Regenerative Medicine Technologies for Nerve Injuries
Presented by: AxoGen, Inc.
Faculty: James P. Higgins, MD, Steven L. Moran, MD
Location: Columbus A B
Is it time to challenge our previous expectations for peripheral nerve repair? The application of regenerative medicine principles have now translated into advanced materials to work with the body to support the natural regenerative process. This interactive workshop will provide a hands-on opportunity to focus on the handling and material properties. Explore practical applications, and review specific clinical cases of regenerative medicine solutions. You will emerge from this session with an arsenal of approaches for an immediate impact on the continuum of care. This is a must-attend session for the surgeon seeking to expand his or her peripheral nerve repair options.
Industry Forum 22: Single-Portal Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release Surgeon Cadaver Training
Presented by: MicroAire Surgical Instruments
