Use of Osteotomy in Management of Complex Knee Disorder (IC)

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify the indications and techniques for tibial osteotomy and femoral osteotomy. The participant will know how to carry out pre-operative templating of radiographs for surgical planning and the basic surgical techniques for standard tibial and femoral osteotomies. The participant will also understand the role of computer navigation in planning and execution of osteotomy.
  2. Describe indications and techniques for the use of osteotomy in conjunction with surgery for knee instability, cartilage resurfacing, and meniscus transplantation. The participant will understand how to perform both sagittal plane and coronal plane corrections.
  3. Describe indications and techniques for the use of osteotomy in the treatment of patellofemoral instability, for focal chondral lesions of the patella and trochlea, and for patellofemoral arthrosis.
  4. Plan post-operative rehabilitation for each specific type of osteotomy and be able to discuss potential complications specific to various types of osteotomy.

OIC2017N
The Specificity of the ACL Injury in the Young Athlete (IC)

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Discuss that the risk of ACL injury and re-injury in the 14- to 18-year-old athlete is significantly high and increases with level of participation and types of sport participation.
  2. Explain that there are specific mechanisms of injury in this age group that are biomechanically and neuromuscularly based.
  3. Explain that in this age group, surgical options are very specific and vary with respect to degree of physeal closure, sex, age, type of sport participation, and long-term goals.
  4. Discuss that post-operative programs must include understanding of initial mechanisms of injury, rehabilitation, preventative approaches that include biomechanical and neuromuscular strategies and specific return-to-sport progressions, and criteria for success and prevention of re-injury.
  5. Introduce the concepts of orthobiological interventions as diseasemodifying to minimize the potential of osteoarthritis.

Strategies to Diagnose and Address Rotational Laxity (IC)

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Interpret the examination of the grossly rotationally unstable ACL -deficient knee, relating the clinical findings to biomechanical deficiencies and diagnostic tests.
  2. Describe a reproducible ACL reconstruction with current concepts based on an up-to-date evidence base.
  3. Recognize and diagnose specific meniscal lesions, including posterior root tears and “ramp” lesions of the posteromedial meniscus. Repair techniques will be demonstrated.
  4. Diagnose and appropriately surgically address medial- and lateral-sided injuries.

Shoulder Instability: Dilemmas in the Elite (IC)

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Discuss and understand the appropriate treatment of shoulder instability in in-season athletes.
  2. Discuss treatment algorithms for athletes with shoulder instability, including first-time dislocations, recurrent instability, and instability with bone loss.
  3. Discuss the state-of-the-art surgical techniques for shoulder instability, including arthroscopic and open procedures. Current rehabilitation strategies will also be discussed.

Recurrent Patellar Instability: How and When to Fix It (IC)

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify those patients who are candidates for isolated MPFL reconstruction vs. those patients who would benefit from a tibial tubercle transfer in addition to the MPFL.
  2. Recognize and treat common complications relating to patellar instability surgery.
  3. Identify and treat cartilage defects resulting from patellar instability.
  4. Describe appropriate post-operative rehab guidelines and return-to-play parameters.

Failed Cartilage Repair: Why and What's the Next Step? (IC)

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify technical aspects of primary cartilage repair that have been found to correlate with failure rates.
  2. Employ the appropriate diagnostic tests to evaluate the patient with painful cartilage repair for failure of the repair itself, as well as to assess concurrent joint pathology such as malalignment, instability, and meniscal insufficiency.
  3. Devise a treatment plan on conservative versus surgical management of the cartilage defect and potential concurrent joint pathology.
