Total Distal Radio-Ulnar Joint Replacement using a Semi-constrained Prosthesis

Presented by Aptis Medical, LLC
Faculty: Douglas P. Hanel, MD, Jesse B. Jupiter, MD and Luis R. Scheker, MD
Format: Hands-on cadaveric demonstration (faculty only)
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 and Bowers hemi‐resection procedures, or as a salvage of other prosthetic options.

The Biomechanics of the Distal Radius Fracture 

Presented by Skeletal Dynamics
Faculty: Jorge L. Orbay, MD
Format: Hands-on cadaveric demonstration (faculty only)​
Address the advancements in distal radius fracture management, and review a new design in volar plating featuring the GEMINUS® Fossa Specific Plating System.  The plate features a unique dual head design that improves fit to the anatomy, minimizing the potential for flexor tendon injuries while providing the scaphoid and lunate fossae with optimized subchondral support.  Each malleable head can be adjusted independently to provide ideal patient matching.

Stabilization of Carpal Instability

Presented by Acumed
Faculty: William Geissler, MD, Randip Bindra, MD and Michael G. McNamara, MD
Format: Lecture/panel discussion and Hands-on attendee activity using "Sawbones"
Presentations by Drs. William Geissler and Randy Bindra and will focus on Scapho-Lunate instability cases and their treatment with the SLIC Screw, a unique jointed screw designed to temporarily hold the scaphoid and lunate anatomically reduced until the biological healing of soft tissue repair or reconstruction has occurred.  Additionally, a presentation by Dr. Michael McNamara will address the SL Targeting Guide, a specialized guide wire targeting guide which allows for simplified targeting of the central third of the scaphoid and lunate in the lateral view.

Following the lectures, there will be a hands-on sawbones lab with the SLIC Screw System and SL Targeting Guide.

Minimally Invasive Distal Radius Repair

Presented by Conventus Orthopaedics, Inc.
Faculty: Steve Moran, MD, Michael Strassmair, MD and Thomas M. Walsh, MD
Format: Lecture/panel discussion and Hands-on attendee activity using "Sawbones"
Conventus Orthopaedics expands fracture fixation to make better patient care possible.  The Conventus DRS™ System offers an intramedullary implant for fixation of a broad range of distal radius fractures with a simple technique that is 80% less invasive than traditional plate and screw procedures.  This tissue preserving approach to fracture fixation was developed to lessen post-surgical pain and speed patient recovery.
This Conventus workshop will cover clinical need, surgical technique and clinical results for the treatment of distal radius fractures.
