The 2021 8th Annual Revision Hip & Knee Course is intended for orthopaedic surgeons who have ample experience in primary arthroplasty and now want to become more proficient in revision procedures. This highly interactive, hands-on course features expert faculty, who will share the knowledge, principles, and skills necessary to evaluate arthroplasty patients who have pain, fracture, infection, instability, bone loss, and implant failure. You will learn how to determine an appropriate treatment course, identify potential pitfalls, and either work up and refer or perform revision surgery when indicated. You will also receive solid hands-on training in revision procedures during the bioskills labs included with your registration for the course. ,Learning Objectives: • Discuss clinical, radiographic, and laboratory evaluation of a patient who presents with a painful or failed hip or knee arthroplasty • Evaluate sources of pain to establish a differential diagnosis and discuss appropriate treatment options • Identify potential challenges in a revision hip or knee procedure and demonstrate the ability to prepare a preoperative plan that includes evaluation of the appropriate surgical intervention, anticipated blood loss, and necessary implants, bone grafts, and removal tools • Compare and contrast options to safely and effectively remove existing prosthetic devices while minimizing blood and bone loss and avoiding compromise of motor function, neurovascular injury, and infection • Discuss the principles necessary to obtain fixation and restore joint stability, kinematics, and function in a revision hip or knee arthroplasty • Demonstrate removal of well-fixed hip and knee components and cement from cadaveric specimens • Demonstrate extensile approaches to revision hip or knee arthroplasty, including the extended trochanteric osteotomy and the tibial tubercle osteotomy, in cadaveric specimens • Evaluate reconstructive options that allow management of bone loss with restoration of maximum mobility • Identify the steps in evaluating and diagnosing a periprosthetic joint infection in hip and knee arthroplasty patients, including the emerging use of advanced molecular diagnostic tools • Describe the role of I&D with component retention and subsequent antibiotic suppression therapy in managing acute periprosthetic joint infection in hip and knee arthroplasty patients • Discuss the pros and cons of articulating versus non-articulating antibiotic spacers in a 2-stage exchange for an infected total hip arthroplasty and articulating versus static antibiotic spacers in a 2-stage exchange for an infected total knee arthroplasty
